Kindergarten students in Mrs. Courtney Dyer’s class recently learned about apples. They have learned about Johnny Appleseed, the life cycle of an apple, the parts of an apple, the different types and colors of apples, how they are grown, and things that are made from apples. Lessons were all topped off with an apple tasting.
Students tasted a red delicious, a Granny Smith, and a golden delicious apple. They then used their five senses to describe the apples. After trying all three types of apples, the children voted on which type was their favorite! It was a tie between red delicious and Granny Smith, but golden delicious was not too far behind. To culminate the apple unit, the children brought in one chopped apple to make applesauce. Mrs. Dyer cooked it all day in her crockpot and their room smelled amazing!
It was a wonderful treat for the first day of fall!
