We are rowing How to bake an Apple Pie and see the World this week. We began today with map work, learning where the different countries are. We also went over some vocabulary words. DD4 dictated a recipe for apple pie, we will do another one at the end and see how different the two will be. We will be doing the following in the next week or so:
Graphing our favorite apples, after taste testing them.
Each of us will get a different apple to describe using as many adjectives as possible after learning about our apple with our 5 senses.
Play a game with pictures of the different ingredients - matching them to their country.
We MIGHT put eggs in a baggie and see how long they last - still deciding that one.
We will be reading about Johnny Appleseed and hopefully visiting his tomb at Johnny Appleseed Park in Fort Wayne, IN. (update - we looked and looked and couldn't find the tomb )
We will also go apple picking at an orchard down the road.
We will be doing an experiment about salt water.
