To end our mini unit about apples, we had an apple tasting in class today!
After learning all about the parts of an apple, doing apple printing, reading Ten Apples Up On Top by Dr. Seuss, and talking about different types of apples, we had an apple tasting to explore the different flavors of different types of apples.
The students each got to taste Red Delicious, Granny Smith, and Golden Delicious apples. After each apple tasted, we talked about the flavor and discussed if the apple was sour, juicy, sweet, crunchy, sweet, or tart.
After graphing reactions to the different apples, we found out that our class like Red Delicious apples the most and Golden Delicious apples the least!
It was a lot of fun tasting all of the different kinds of apples and picking our favorites!
