I'm way behind with my blogging but...here are some apple activities we did last week. Our Q-tip paintings are one of my favorites. The kids paint the apple tree in each season, so they can see the cycle of the tree. They love this!
And of course, we had an apple tasting. We graphed our predictions about what we would like, and the results of what we actually like best. It was really interesting to see how drastically the graphs changed. The kids made some really great connections and comparisons between the two graphs.
I think it's so important in kindergarten to teach kids that others have different opinions than their own. Our apple tasting was the perfect opportunity to see that. So, we did a shared writing activity about everyone's opinions on the apples.
