In celebration of fall and all you do, I'm knocking a dollar off for a limited time.
This apple-shaped “flip” booklet, is a quick, easy and fun
way to teach the life cycle of an apple
I’ve included full-color patterns
so you can quickly & easily make a sample
to share, as well as a BW version
Simply run off the whole apple “cover” on red, yellow & lime green construction paper.
(There are 2 options
: One with graphics
, the other with just words
Run off the “bottom” apple pattern, (which has a stem & leaf on it) on white construction paper or card stock.
This will form the base
of your booklet.
There are 4 options
for this. (2 for girls & 2 for boys).
Children color the stem & leaf with crayons or markers.
They can leave the base as a full sheet of paper, or they can cut it out to make an apple-shaped
The inside life cycle “pages”
are 2-on-a-page to conserve paper.
I purposely made the booklet just 2 pages
long, so this would be a simple activity that can be done in a short amount
Children color, trim
, and glue
their pages to the right hand side of the apple
base, then add the cover
When everyone is done, read the picture booklet as a whole group to review the science vocabulary
, and solidify the life cycle's sequence
in children’s minds.
Encourage them to share what they’ve learned with their families.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy flipping and flapping as they learn about the life cycle of an apple
