when being picked off the fresh trees.

Green apples are sour and sometime

An Apple

It starts as a flower,

Then fades away.

In its place swells a green pome one day,

Growing until early in the Fall.

Slowly, it turns red and is no longer small.

Finally, it is picked and eaten by all.

We began our apple study with KWL. Students identified areas they were most interested in. The unit grew from there while including our Kentucky

Learner Goals and the academic expectations that go along with them.

Students were to create a definition poem. We brainstormed properties of apples, came up with some poems together and then worked at tables creating our own.

The writing activity included the following academic expectations.

They are as follows:

Goal 1 (1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.10, 1.11, 1.16)

Students used research tools (internet, encyclopedias, other people, trade books, observations) to learn more about apples. This gave us sufficient background knowledge to build our writings upon.

Other goals were met throughout the unit including science ( apple experiments, plant development) math( weighing, surveying, bar graphing) social studies (Johnny Appleseed, areas of production, visiting orchard) practical learning (cooking apple pies).   arts/humanities (apple collage)
