This unit is common core-correlated for first graders. However, I've used a great deal of these activities with my second graders at the beginning of the year. This would also be a great unit for struggling third graders or intervention specialists to use with their students! Apples are an easy, healthy, yummy snack that kids love. Now, you can turn this snack into a fun and exciting integrating learning experience for your students!
