I. NATURE TALES
There’s nothing more powerful than storytelling to connect us and make sense of our world. Introduce our topic with our read-aloud, Johnny Appleseed by Reeve Lindbergh, and related discussion.
Enrich your understanding as we begin to explore what apples look like, their anatomy, and lifecycles with our illustrated lesson guides, vintage watercolor posters, and a variety of activities.
Bring out your ‘looking glass’ and delve deeper into apple pollination with our dissection activity; learn how apples are measured as we play with bushels, pecks, and quart equations; explore the science of apple storage; conduct an enzymatic browning experiment; and learn the nutrient content of apples as we compare the glycemic index of different fruits!
IV. POETRY & ARTS
Enjoy a related poetry study (with copywork), art study, music study, and learn about apple folklore.
Celebrate everything we’ve learned with a fun apple-stamped banner, make apple butter, and apple loaf!
VI. ON THE TRAIL
These nature study activities will take you outside as you go on an Apple Orchard Scavenger Hunt; learn how new apple varieties are created with your Apple Variety Learning Cards, and host an Apple Tasting with your new Nature Journal.
