How Do Apples Grow? by Betsy Maestro is packed with information. A word to the wise, there is a section on female parts and male parts of an apple blossom… so in the plant world… this book is a racy read! Oh-la-la!
The illustrations are beautiful and we use these images to help label the parts of an apple blossom.
This is a featured book in our Reading Comprehension: Guiding Readers unit. After reading the book, we work on studying the life cycle of an apple by constructing this anchor chart.
Then students create their own life cycle of an apple craft.
We also do some sentence work surrounding apples. Students work on construction the sentence and it is a great time to focus on concepts of print.
We look at the how antioxidants effect apples with a fun experiment using various liquids. You can find this activity by clicking HERE.
