Default Colours and Food!

I found this great little poem.

Colors In My Food
--by: Bonnie Flemming

Colors, colors, what colors do I see
in the food the farmer grows for me?
Orange carrots and ripe red tomatoes,
Green string beans and nice brown potatoes.
Yellow butter is to spread on my bread,
Cold white milk and an apple so red,
Yes, these are the foods that are best, I know,
Because they help me to grow and grow!

*Use flannel board props of food. Use real foods, allow students to eat them as a snack when finished!

You could brainstorm with the students to write a class piece to extend this.
