All About Apples

The past two weeks have been all about apples.  We taste tested apples, cooked with apples, sang about apples, and crafted apples.  It's been a lot of fun learning about this popular fruit!

Here is a worksheet I created for my crew to fill in before and after our taste test.  We tasted yellow apples (golden delicious), green apples (granny smith), and red apples (royal gala).

The children drew a picture of an apple tree.

They finger painted circles and added a stem and leaf to create an apple.

The favourite craft we did was stuffed apples!  I cut an apple template out of felt and hot glued it 3/4 the way closed.  They stuffed the apples with batting then I glued them closed and we added a felt leaf.

You can find more apple activities on my blog:
