Our apple exploration began when I read, Annie the Apple Pie Fairy…Interesting how the Fairies continue to take us on some awesome adventures about our world. This time we are making connections to the food we eat. I placed a basket of apples on the floor…and here we go….
LEMONS…We tasted the apples that were in the lemon juice. The apples in the ginger ale, vinegar, and soda were brown. Recordings were drawn.
What can we make with apples?
I wonder what we could make with these apples...What do you think?
The girls settled on Apple Pie and Apple sauce.
What will we need to make that happen?
Hmm...What else to we need? I wonder what we would put the apples in don't you.
...Yes, a bowl
....How will we measure the other ingredients?
We need something else...you all wrote these in the kitchen.
We found recipes and then went to work. Ms Cowan began the preparation for the pie and I worked on the Apple Sauce. The girls helped with both.
Observational Drawings I liked.....
....and the girls are still talking about apples!!!!! Happy Harvest
