I think the Aa - Apple Unit has been our favorite so far! Who doesn't love homemade apple treats? We definitely enjoyed it.
We created a Apple Color Graph to practice our graphing. We had three different apple colors and Little Bear pasted coordinating paper squares to his graph to represent the number of apples we had in each color. He really enjoyed this simple task.
This was alot of fun! Even Papa (my dad) joined in on the guessing. He guessed way out there and the kids thought that was a riot! Little Bear got the number of seeds in the red apple correct!
I found a little free print-out online of an apple taste testing journal and stapled the pages together. Little Bear loved this. It had apple predictions, a graph page to graph the results (and because there were just a few of us taste testing, we graphed for each apple the number of people who liked it, and more than one could be liked) and then a result page.
The results page. It even had a bit of math to it and Little Bear had to use his noggin!
The finished Apple Color Graph. Nothing fancy but was a huge hit. Not pictured because I didn't take any photos was a dice game "Roll an Apple Tree". Little Bear enjoyed this and I had to print several sheets so he could play again. Will keep this in mind for the future themes/units and may laminate the sheet instead.
Trying apple sauce. Little Bear has had it before, but Bug was very hesitant.. actually he had made up his mind already that he did not like it!
Coring and peeling apples for apple crisp.
Ready to go in to the oven!
Apple Crisp! This stuff is DELICIOUS!!! Go grab the recipe over at How Does She? The homemade caramel sauce is to die for too!
