Marie’s Class Studies Apples

Marie's Class studies applesMarie’s class has been hard at work studying apples. The students enjoyed tasting and smelling 3 different types of apples.  We had an apple taste test and created a graph of everyone’s favorite apple.  In science, the students worked on sorting apples by color, learning the growing process of apples, and identifying the parts of apples.  In math, the students completed counting and number activities after reading “Ten Apples Up On Top.”   Each student had an opportunity to use the Smartboard to count apples and add them to the top of their head.   As a Back to School night treat, the students made caramel apples to surprise their parents.
