The First Grade celebrated Johnny Appleseed’s birthday and the first day of autumn with a fun-filled day of apple activities! “This is the best day ever!” remarked one of my students as they were busy writing out the recipe and then making their very own Apple Pizzas, sampling the ingredients along the way. This day was the perfect way to put all our learning into action as we have been studying our 5 senses and how to describe what we see, feel, taste, touch, and hear using adjectives: sour, sweet, crunchy, smooth, round, juicy, yummy, red, yellow, and green. Our students also compared the tastes and textures of 3 different apples. They decided which one was their favorite, and then we collected the data by creating a picture graph. 15 students chose Red Delicious apples as their favorite in my class which was by far the most liked apple. We sang apple songs, read apple books, and watched a fun video about Johnny Appleseed. Finally, all 3 First Grade classes met up at the picnic tables to enjoy eating our Apple Pizzas together.
