During the month of
October our class enjoyed an interdisciplinary unit on apples.
Throughout this unit, students were involved in many facets of
learning. The unit introduced the children to literature,
writing, science, mathematics, art and social studies in a way
that was stimulating and fun for them. The academic skills were
coupled with social skills as the children learned to function
independently and also as a team member in cooperative groups.
The students performed many hands-on activities. One of the
objectives for the unit was to taste and graph their favorite
apple. Graphs were created with
The Graph Club. We also
wrote acrostic-style poems about apples. The children typed and
designed their own poems with MaxWrite which is part of
