All About Apples

Recently, students in second grade spent a week on project based learning activities related to apples. Students learned about the life cycles of apples in science. In math they learned to use measuring tools as part of two cooking projects. In reading they read fiction and non fiction texts surrounding apples and focused on life of John Chapman, aka “Johnny Appleseed.”

Students had two cooking projects. On the first day they made homemade applesauce. On the second day they used their homemade applesauce to make two apple cakes and ended the day by watching a Johnny Appleseed video and enjoying our homemade applesauce and apple cake.
