Here in Virginia, it’s apple picking time at all the local orchards. Time for apple pie, apple cider, apple dumplings, and the list goes on… yum! So of course, we threaded lots of apple activities into our class.
We were learning about our five senses in science, so this was the perfect opportunity to incorporate all of them. First, we explored apples with our sense of sight, smell, and touch. The students shook the apples to see if they made a sound, and then determined they did not. When we taste tested the apples, we talked about the sound they made as we crunched them!
