Room 11 went totally tropical last week. In order to prepare for making pineapple pine cones on Friday, we took an in depth look at the interesting fruit. On Monday, we discussed the pineapple using pictures. We touched on how they grow, what they look like inside and more. On Tuesday, we held a pineapple and observed how spiky and heavy it felt. Some of us ate/licked/held some chunks after it was cut up. While we were eating it, Ciarán made an excellent suggestion about making pineapple juice! Subsequently, on Wednesday, we made pineapple juice and ALL of us drank our cup of juice! On Thursday, we drew and labelled a picture of a pineapple in our drawing copies. By Friday, we were more than ready to transform our pine cones into pineapples by painting them yellow and gluing strips of green paper on top.
