Our theme this week was "Apples". This week was Johnny Appleseed's Birthday and we helped him celebrate. We had tons of activities using apples. We started off our celebration with a cool measurement activity. We took turns measuring how many apples it took to measure our height. Your answer had to be recorded using apples. Once everyone finished measuring and recording their height, We posted our height from shortest to tallest. We had a graphing station where we voted and graphed what our favorite apple was. We made apple mosaics using construction paper and then labeled the parts of an apple for our apple book. Next, we got really creative. We painted apple pictures using apples cut in half. Luckily we had some extra help from a few high school students who came to our classroom to volunteer. They were a huge help. Of course you couldn't have apple math day without making some homemade apple sauce. We wrote down the ingredients we would need and directions on how to make it. We all helped mix the ingredients and waited impatiently for it to finish cooking in the crockpot so we could taste our creation. They smelled so good while they were cooking. We couldn't wait to sample our recipe.
some interesting facts!
