Peek Inside

The apple activities are easy to differentiate, making them perfect for kindergarten and first grade!

First up, use an ordinary apple to work on estimating, measurement, buoyancy and scientific observations.

Then explore buoyancy and stretch kids’ STEM skills by designing, building and tweaking apple boats.

Learn about the apple life cycle with a colorful poster and helpful craftivity.

Then work on 2D shapes by playing a motivating round of Concentration. (There are 2D shapes included!)

And practice number concept with a fun game of chance!

Kids will pick a number from the pile, write it on their sheet and then write the three numbers that come after it.

You can focus on the numbers 1-20 or stretch the activity for students who are ready by adding in the numbers up to 120.
