Apple Unit

As I mentioned in an earlier post,  I am creating thematic units for my first grader's history and science lessons. I plan these to last 2 weeks per topic, and we do it three days each week. My friend and I are both doing these units with our boys and at the end of our unit, we get together for a theme-related snack and craft. Now that it's fall, of course we had to have an apple theme. Here's what we did:
