Cucumber Soup

Ten ants find that a cucumber has fallen and blocked the entrance to their home. The ants are strong, but the cucumber is too heavy for them to move alone. Find out what other garden critters come to the rescue! Do you see any of these insects in your garden? Don’t forget to try the recipe!

Cucumber Soup is featured in these K-2 Growing Minds lesson plans: Cucumber Stacks and Insect Exploration. Note: this book is out of print, but is available to check out from our farm to school lending library. You can also watch a read aloud by Growing Minds staff here.
