All About Apples
FL Apple Lesson

Kindergarten students at Forest Lake Elementary employed their five senses, mathematics and English language arts skills to learn about apples during a fall science unit.

The apple-scientists brought their favorite type of apple from home to study intricately at school, measuring its height and width with cubes, naming the parts of the fruit, and rendering the shape and color on a worksheet.

Teacher Robin Conte asked the students to describe the apples and wrote their descriptive adjectives on the whiteboard. The students also graphed the apples according to the number of red, green and yellow apples brought from home. At the end of the week, they even made a batch of applesauce for the class to enjoy during an afternoon snack.
