Outside Play: Apples

Our Outside Play series continues this month with Apples as the theme. Fall is nearly upon us and apple season has begun.

We have an apple tree in our front yard. Aiden has been waiting patiently for the apples to be ready to eat. We decided it was time to go see if any were ready.

Aiden found a few he could reach and picked them.

I grabbed a couple higher up. We got a plate, cutting board, and a knife and went around back to examine the apples.

The apples were damaged in various places. We wondered how far spread the damage was. Was the entire apple rotten, or was the damage just on the outside? We expected the apple on the right to have the most damage.

 The apple on the far left was actually the most damaged. The apple in the middle just had a small spot that could be easily cut off. Half of the apple on the far right was inedible. Now we tasted the apples to see if they were ripe. They were good. We will be visiting our apple tree again soon.

  1. A fun little investigation.

  2. My kind of exploration. Lots of fun learning. Did you find the “magic” in the apple.? It’s something my children love to find each year. The older children always get excited to share their knowledge of the “magic”. (cut in half through the center and a star will be found where the core is)

  3. I wish we had an apple tree in our yard.
    I loved this investigation and included it in my round-up of apple-themed activities as part of my book review of ‘Apple’.
    Thanks for sharing.
