The All in For Apples Mission is an innovative, fun way to integrate the ever-so-popular apple theme in your classroom with meaningful lessons that include easy to follow, step by step directions. These lessons are highly motivating and are designed to engage students. Lessons include a creative writing project that encourages descriptive writing with "juicy" words. Students will predict,describe,and record using their five senses and a myriad of apple slices! Yum! Use the writing to create a fun, "A-Peeling! Bulletin Board! Other lessons include a product taste test that will be sure to lure in the most reluctant learners, data collection, graphing, and a super, easy as pie apple turnover recipe with recipe cards to send home. Lessons can be done over the course of a few days or done all together. The activities can also be done cooperatively! Your class will LOVE these lessons! Move over Johnny Appleseed!
As a side note, I do differently themed "missions"-one each month.(The Watermelon Mission was our end-of year one.) We collect out data sheets in a special folder. It is a great way to keep track of our year in an innovative way. My kiddos look forward to each top secret adventure. Look for each monthly mission coming soon!
