We then proceeded to do some apple tasting. We tasted different colored apples (red, green, yellow) and graphed the one we liked the best. We also tasted apple sauce and apple juice. We then graphed which way they liked apples best (apple fruit, apple juice, or apple sauce). Most of my students enjoyed the apple juice! My kids disliked the apple sauce because it looked like baby food.
We also created apple prints to go along with our apple theme and integrated math into it by adding seeds to our prints. The star shape didn't come out on our prints so after our initial print we then stamped a star shape on top of it. We wrote numbers in the center of each apple and cut black construction paper to make the seeds. The number of seeds on the print matched the number on the apple.
