Apples: A Class Act

Apple Observations

Have students observe and taste a variety of apples to determine apple color, texture, taste, and size. Cut an apple in half vertically to observe the parts of an apple. After brainstorming apple characteristics with students, the following observations might be recorded on chart paper:

  • Apple colors are red, green or gold.
  • They come in a variety of sizes.
  • Apple flavors vary from sweet to tart.
  • Skin, flesh, core, seeds, stem and leaves are parts of an apple.
