Classroom: Apples

This week the students learned all about apples and all the parts that make up an apple like the skin, flesh, core, seeds and stem. The students enjoyed tasting different types of apples: granny smith, red delicious, gala and honey crisp. They also discovered what the inside of an apple looks like and how apples grow.  The students even had the chance to do apple stamping and make homemade applesauce.
