Students learn about four different apple varieties: Red Delicious, McIntosh, Golden Delicious, and Granny Smith. They describe and sample each apple, then color it. This activity may be done solo or along with the book How Do Apples Grow? by Betsy Maestro. (The book shows these four apples when explaining that apples are different colors because of how sunlight helps change the skin color of some apples.)
As a side note, I bought each apple type and photographed them to create the four apple illustrations.
Enjoy, Colleen Penn
