We recently finished a big unit on states of matter and their properties. We looked at apples and made a list of properties that described the apples. Then we got to taste the different color apples and we added more words to our list after tasting. We knew by looking at the apple it was round and smooth on the outside. When we got to taste it we learned that apples can we juicy too. We also got to taste apples in its different states. We tasted a liquid and solid apple. We discussed what a gas is but did not taste anything for that.
What Apple unit would not be complete without reading the book Ten Apples Up on Top by Dr. Seuss? The kids loved the book and enjoyed making their own pictures of them with apples on top of their head.
