Apple Activities for Preschool and Kindergarten

With fall around the corner, I’m sharing a list of apple activities for preschool and kindergarten. These ideas would be great for building an apple-themed unit study or simply for planning a few fun apple-related activities for the season. Lets get started!

What can my child learn from studying apples?

This year, I am really loving the idea of creating units for us to use in our homeschool. Submersing ourselves with different faucets of an object or idea. It’s not just a worksheet about the parts of an apple but its books, poetry, music, math, writing, crafts, cooking, and more.

Apples are a great topic to jump into, especially with little ones. From harvest time to the season of autumn, kids can learn a lot from this topic, here are a few more things they can learn:

  • Life cycle of fruit
  • types of apples
  • season of autumn
  • cooking and processing food
  • parts of an apple
  • an empathy for farmers and the work it takes to grow food
  • ways to use apples
  • the feeling of fall
  • story of Johnny Appleseed

Objectives for Apple unit

  • Identify general characteristics of apples (shape, color, taste, etc)
  • Differentiate apples from the other types of fruit
  • Build preschool and kindergarten skills through apple-themed music, crafts, activities, math, language, and imaginative play.
