A first graders lesson on apples - from seed to taste test. Part biology, part cooking, part food critique and a little math.
My son's teacher, Ms. Smith, gave a wonderful lesson to her first grade class on apples. The children learned about the biology of a fruit tree, the path from harvest to market, varietal differences, cooking (they made applesauce) and my favorite, the blind taste test. Ms Smith's class favorite... the Golden Delicious by a landslide!
