What does it smell like- sour or sweet? do you want to taste a lemon and see what it looks like on the inside? Tell them we are going to explore and learn with our senses about lemons and lemonade today

SONGS/ RHYMES:

Sing a Song of Lemonade
Sing a song of lemonade.
We'll pour it in a cup.
We'll stir it with a straw
And then we'll sip it up.
It will be so refreshing
We'll have to have some more,
And we'll be drinking lemonade forever, ever more!
