Hello sweet friends! I wanted to stop by today and share about our super fun Apple Investigation! It was a blast, and I hope the kiddos will never forget it! Tomorrow, we are making crockpot applesauce! I can’t wait!
I didn’t get as many good pictures as I wanted 🙁 The kiddos were so engaged, and I was having so much fun chatting with them, I just forgot, haha! But I did get a few shots!
I actually bought apples at Walmart, to make sure we had enough, haha. But I know lots of friends that sent letters home and had students bring in their own apples! They had to
1. Measure the apple’s height with blocks
2. Measure the apple’s weight with blocks
3. Measure the apple’s width with paperclips
4. Find someone’s apple who was bigger and smaller
They recorded their findings on this handy Apple Investigation sheet!
After our investigation, I cut up one type of each apple and we did a taste test! I LOVE using real life questions and scenarios to practice graphing…they are so much more engaged in their findings!
Then, we did a little writing with our senses! We have been working hard to underline words we aren’t sure about, and you can see that on some of their work…so sweet!
Finally, they made a flipbook on “How to Eat An Apple.” They thought this was hilarious!! They kept saying “who doesn’t know how to eat an apple?!” Hahah!
You can find all these activities in my Apple Unit! 🙂
