The Life Cycle of an Apple Tree Package is a fantastic biology resource in any young classroom and links beautifully with other nature themed activities. It's a great way to visually teach the cyclical pattern of life while perking the interest and curiosity of children about apples, trees, and where they come from.
This package includes two versions: one with 5 steps, for younger children, and one with 7 steps, for older children. All the material in this package can easily be adapted for any child between the age of 3 and 8!
This package contains:
1) The life cycle of an apple tree with labeled pictures - for visually teaching the cycle
2) The life cycle of an apple tree fact sheet - for expanding upon the steps of the cycle
3) A blank cycle with separate pictures - for children to place in the correct order of the cycle, practicing the steps once taught
4) The life cycle of an apple tree with unlabeled pictures - Children who can write are encouraged to write in the labels of the steps of the cycle. Separate labels are included for children who can read but struggle to write or spell.
After introducing this material to your students, take the opportunity to expand on your lesson by germinating apple seeds or going to an apple orchard!
Thank you for your interest and support! Enjoy!
