September is known for it’s apples! Help the kids understand that apples don’t just come from the grocery store.
Math is a good time to do this activity. It involves voting and simply graphing. :-)
I bought a jar of apple butter, a jug of apple cider, some red, yellow and green apples, and some apple sauce.
Plates, butter knife, pieces of bread, napkins, and Dixie cups.
I had the students each taste the four items: apple butter on a piece of bread, cup of apple cider, piece of apple, and a cup of apple sauce.
You can do other foods/drinks too! Apple juice, apple fritters, apple pie, apple candies, or apple jelly.
The students love the experience and they get to have their own opinion. :-)
Please remember the allergies that your students have before trying this in your classroom! :-)
