What Would We Eat Without Plants?
By Jane Runyon
  

1     Mrs. Kim greeted her class.
 
2     "Good morning, boys and girls," she said. "I have a special guest I would like for you to meet."
 
3     "Where is she?" asked Hannah. "All I see is Mrs. Robbins, the lunch lady."
 
4     "Mrs. Robbins is our special guest," answered Mrs. Kim. "She has come to our class to tell us about the plants we eat."
 
5     "I don't eat plants!" said Austin.
 
6     "Yuck!" added Josh. "Do you feed us plants in the lunchroom?"
 
7     "In a way, yes," answered Mrs. Robbins.
 
8     "Oh, no!" sighed Matthew. "I'll never be able to eat another meal in the lunchroom. I didn't know I was eating plants."
 
9     "Just hold on a minute, Matthew," said Mrs. Robbins. "You might want to change your mind about that."
 
10     A few of the children grumbled, but they decided to listen to what Mrs. Robbins had to say. Mrs. Robbins went to a table at the front of the room. There was a sheet covering something up on the table. When Mrs. Robbins took the sheet off, the children saw a bowl with some grass. There were other bowls with green plants in them.
 
11     "Would any of you like to sample the plants I have in these bowls?" Mrs. Robbins asked.
 
12     "No!" the class answered all together.
