Our fourth unit covered the letter A and apples. This is another unit we pretty much followed exactly. One activity included cutting an apple in half horizontally so you could see the star inside that God put there. Then we made thin slices to hang and dry for ornaments. We took this a step further and used the rest of the apple to make apple stamp paintings:
Another fun activity was making applesauce. Instead of just simply peeling and cutting up the apples, My Father’s World had students estimate how many seeds were in each apple. Sarah and Abigail made little charts showing their estimates and what we actually found. The girls especially enjoyed this part.
The grand finale of the unit was making an apple pie. I think school can only be awesome when it involves apple pie!
