In the preschool 1 classroom at Majestic Harbor Children’s Center in Gloucester, Massachusetts they kicked-off, “Cooking week,” for the classroom with a delicious no-bake apple pie! The students loved being able to help prepare the tasty dessert by smashing-up graham crackers and assembling everything before digging-in and having the treat. It is easy to do with your class as well!
Whether you are doing taste tests, making art inspired by apples, or picking them, there is so much that can be done with apples. Doing this activity is perfect for the Fall (apple-picking season) and we have a bunch of related preschool activities for you.
The Dr. Seuss book, “Ten Apples Up On Top,” is the inspiration for this fun math and balance lesson.
After reading the story Ten Apples Up Top by Dr. Seuss we set out to create our own rendition. The integration of literacy into activities further extends the life of the story and in turn fosters creative thinking.
Here in Upstate NY, apples are the focus of our fall outings. I include an Apple theme into my fall curriculum every year.
The children love it! On top of the activities depicted in the photos below, we taste tested apples and graphed our results. During circle time we made patterns with felt apples and read many stories featuring apples.
This painting craft involves taking a bath pouf like you would use in the tub and utilizing it in a brand-new and clever way!
