Exploring and Rolling Oranges

You Will Need:

Oranges

Directions:

Look at an orange together. Ask your child, “How does the orange smell?” and “What can we do with it?”  Say things like, “It’s round”; “Try rolling it to me”; “Let’s open it up and see what is inside” and “It’s juicy, isn’t it?”

Tip:

Try cutting a hole in the top and squeezing the juice out before you open it up.
