Apple Unit Resources Updated



Did you know October is Apple Month? Every year I post links to some fun resources for an apple unit. Until this year, I have focused on the youngers but I have olders and it would be fun to still do some learning with apples that the olders will appreciate. So here is this year's list of ideas for any age you are teaching. The best thing about unit studies is that you can combine all the grade le els and teach everyone at the same time. 

Preschool/Kindergarten

DLTK Apple Activities -  This site was my go to for every one of my kids when they were in preschool. Fun activities and ideas for pretty much every occasion.

File Folder Fun - Here are some fun little apple themed folder games for preschoolers.
