We studied apples for 2 weeks and did everything from count, graph, measure, stamp, write about, taste and even cook with apples. We also got to celebrate Johnny Appleseed's birthday. We did a guided draw of good ol' Johnny. What fun that was!! I love seeing what they create. One craft we did really was my favorite. I pinned it and had to try. The pin came from http://firstgradeblueskies.blogspot.com, and her's were so adorable!! Here is how ours turned out.
Here is a large group picture.
Here is one closer up.
Aren't they the cutest?? I just love them and plan to keep them up for most of the fall season. We also made paper apples to look like candy apples. You can see it here.
These aren't mine but, they are just as cute!!
Hope you enjoy, I'd love to see what you and your class does with an Apple unit. Leave a link in the comments and I will check it out! Erin
