A week ago, I published a Montessori-inspired vegetable unit. Today, I want to share ideas for a Montessori-inspired fruit unit. Since grocery stores today have fruit year-round, you can have a fruit unit at any time. Still, summer is my favorite time for a fruit unit, especially when there’s access to some homegrown fruits.
