This week my first graders and I immersed ourselves in everything apple. We used units by my fabulous friends and a new "graphtivity" by me. The kids had a blast! Scroll through this whole post for fabulous ideas and links, at the end is a linky for more themed products and posts.
We read many apple themed books.
We labeled the parts of an apple.
As a class, we labeled the parts of an apple on chart paper. The cards are from Rachelle of What the Teacher Wants. Then we illustrated our own apple diagrams in our science journal. This is my first year using a science journal. In the past, I used science folders but they were always losing the pages. I will keep you posted on our progress with science journals.
My students were so excited to see if their apples would float or sink.

If you have a first grade appropriate apple themed activity, add your link below. Please, add a link to a direct apple themed product on TpT or a direct link to your apple themed blog post. If you leave a link to a post, please link back to this post somehow. As always, feel free to pin.
Next, year I hope to make apple sauce with my students.
