As we continued on with our apple week, we read a fiction story called Max & Mo Go Apple Picking, and learned about the different elements of a story. Together as a class we filled out an anchor chart that showed the different elements.
For science we’ve been learning about things that are living and nonliving. We examined some apples and created our own diagram that displayed the different parts of the apple.
Today on Friday we celebrated our second Fiesta Friday by putting apples in a juicer and making hot apple cider in a crock pot. Students got to enjoy the apple cider while watching a virtual field trip to an apple orchard on Blippi.
We watched a video about parts of an apple from Hasemeier Early Learning resources. Along with this video was an emergent reader that we read together as a class.
Then we put together an apple with construction paper and labeled the parts. You can find this activity and many other apple activities from our apple mini unit.
