All about BEANS!

Bean is the name used for the seeds of several plants. Most of these plants are known as legumes. Beans contain a lot of fibre. They are also high in protein.

Many different plants produce beans, but they are all members of the same scientific family. The family includes peas, peanuts, and lentils as well as beans. These plants grow in most parts of the world. Most types grow either as a bush or as a climbing plant.

Beans come in many colors—white, green, yellow, tan, pink, red, brown, purple, and black. They also have different shapes. Some are nearly round or oval. Others are flat or kidney-shaped.

There are so many types of beans! Have you got any beans at home? What kind of beans do you have?

Can you make a poster about beans? Research some interesting facts about beans and write them down. Draw your favourite beans.
