Apples are such a fun theme for the Fall, Spring, or anytime of the year! Incorporating apple themed learning activities into the beginning of the year was always one of my favorite ways to get back to teaching. I hope that you and your students will enjoy these apple learning activities for early childhood!
You don't have to limit your apple theme to Fall! Incorporate apples into a nutrition theme or a dental health unit.
These learning activities are used across the learning curriculum from science to literacy to math and art.
