Mrs. Maurer’s Eyer Middle School class had a fun apple day on October 8th! Miss Lanigan had the kiddos walk up to an apple tree at Shoemaker Elementary school. They shook the tree, picked apples and then walked back to the classroom. They then peeled the apples, cored the apples, diced the apples, and put them in a crock pot for applesauce.
They then did an experiment by making apple volcanoes using baking soda, vinegar, water, dish soap and soda. They tried pouring different liquids mixed with a different number of scoops of baking soda. It was fun to figure out what made more foam/bubbles!
The kiddos did great answering WH questions, following directions, labeling parts/features, labeling objects and actions, stating functions of objects, labeling position concepts and manding to peers.
They tasted the apple sauce at the end of the day and some of the kids LOVED it!
