Apples, Apples, Apples
First Graders are continuing to learn all about farms in Vermont. This week we learned about apple farms. Students learned how farmers care for their trees and harvest their fruit. We also learned how and why farmers sell the fruit and apple products to earn money. One product many farms sell is applesauce. Today our first graders had a chance to make our very own applesauce. Each student got the chance to core, peel, and chop their own apple. We put all the apples in the crock pot with a little maple syrup, apple juice and cinnamon. Four hours later, we all enjoyed our applesauce.
