One of the outings I LOVE the most about Fall time in NY is Apple Picking! This year we are going at the end of the month but that is not stopping us from learning all we can about these great source of fiber pectin!
The Science of apple growing is called Pomology.
Another fun fact about apples (and there are many) - they are a member of the Rose family! Who knew!
Some great resources for apple teachings are here for the "picking"....LOL
Apple Unit Study links over at the Homeschool Classroom (all grade levels will learn!)
Entire FALL Preschool pack over at 3 Dinosaurs - including some great Apple worksheets!
I know it's still warm where some of you all live - but here in NY Fall is in the air...apples are waiting to get picked! Here are a few pictures from last year's apple picking fun!
We always pick with the same family and last year brought my oldest son and his fiance.
Have you ever been apple picking? Do you have any recipes to share with apple in them? I would love to make a few new things this year!
Until tomorrow - Be Blessed!
