We had fun exploring apples last week.
I went around and found as many different kinds of apples as I could.
I was a bit disappointed not to have found any yellow apples.
We started by discussing the parts of an apple.
I used this printable and we worked on it together as I let the Lil Divas explore the different parts (minus the leaf because none of my apples had one).
I cut some apples in different ways and they were excited to how different they looked. The Lil Divas especially liked seeing the star and counting out the seeds.
Then we went on to our Taste Test.
I made a simple chart of the different apples we had and the Lil Divas kept track of their color, if they found them sweet or sour tasting and if they liked them or not.
The Lil Divas only had 1 apple they did not like - the one they found sour tasting. Interestingly, it is actually one of my fave apples - the Granny Smith apple.
Then, I let the Lil Divas do some apple stamping with the various cut apples using red, green and yellow paint.
