Apple Taste Test


Bring to school several varieties of apples. Cut them into small pieces. At Circle Time, invite children to taste each kind and decide on their favorite. Create a simple graph on a large sheet of chart paper. Down the left side draw and label each type of apple being tasted. Record each child's choice by drawing a happy face in the row across from the appropriate apple.

When the graph is complete, guide children in using it. Help them count and ask How many children chose Macintosh? Granny Smith? Which apple did more children choose?
