Applicious Adventures

Today was our “apple tasting” event. We had a yummy good time. First, we sample our apple varieties and wrote adjectives describing them. I had the students pick one of their adjectives from their list and write it on an index card and post it on our “big, juicy red apple”.

Next they picked their favorite apple variety (red, green, or yellow) and we posted it on our oversized apple chart. After all of the students posted their apples, we analyzed our data.

Student Recording Sheet I had them “draw” apple using colored pencils as the students were coming up one by one to put on chart.

Tomorrow we will be writing about our “favorite” apples and creating a project for “open house”.

  3. I love, love, love the tree you created for your students to record their favorite apple! I'm doing my taste testing on Friday and can't wait to use it. Thanks for the freebie! Oh, and I like the name of your apple centers. Mine are called the same thing!
