Some Fun Using Apples

This was a week of exploring apples. 🙂

We were able to use apples to measure, make predictions, learn graphing, and investigate.

We investigated the beauty of an apple. God made apples so perfectly. We learned if we cut an apple just right we can see a star inside the apple. 🙂 That was cool!

We also discovered a fun way to peel an apple. If we use an apple peeler then the skin comes off in long string pieces. (Thank you Mrs. Canfield for the peeler :-)) We heard some children describing how the skin looked like snakes. They enjoyed using their creativity to make robot guys, the number six, faces, and cars using the skin. 🙂 We made applesauce with the rest of the apple. I should say, the kids made applesauce. They did everything! All we did was guide them. They peeled the apples, cut them, placed them in the crockpot, and added all the ingredients. All we did was turn the crockpot on. We had 16 friends say they enjoyed tasting their applesauce, and 12 of our friends said they did not like it. We were happy that more than average appreciated all their hard work. 🙂

We used their small muscles to help cut out apples. We enjoyed seeing them work their muscles and demonstrate some new facial expressions. Those apples helped us to identify colors, identify letters, and build our names.

Mryiah thought her and Mrs. Ursua had the same hairdo,

so they had to take a selfie.
