Apple Week

This week our first graders learned all about apples. We labeled the parts of the apple, sequenced how the apple tree grow, sequenced how apples go from the orchards to the store, had an apple taste test, graphed our results, made apple sauce, etc. A very busy week to say the least! Here are some pictures from our adventures!



Apple Investigations

Including apple prints,


weighing our apples, exploring our apples,


and counted apple seeds.


We wrote apple poems.

We taste-tested apples and graphed our results.



We also made applesauce .

Love your apple unit!! I can't wait to get a full class where I can do thematic units like this. Although doing themes in just reading/writing is also fun :) I can't wait to do the applesauce in class, just for fun!!
