Kindergarten Readiness – Apples to Remember

(Planting seeds or a tree in honor of someone can be a meaningful way for a child to remember and for a family to share memories.)

For Apple Learning Activity #2, choose a big, crisp, juicy apple to eat. Instead of tossing the core, save it and find the seeds. Count how many seeds. Do apple seeds look like apple trees? What other foods have seeds? Compare some other seeds to apple seeds and see how they are the same and different. Late summer is a perfect time to find seeds outdoors, perhaps in a garden or a park. Exploring nature, even in something as small as an apple, is another way of helping your child prepare for kindergarten.
