Seasons of An Apple Tree

To reinforce our social studies objective of seasons and as a follow up for our apple orchard field trip we made a simple Apple shaped book.  The children just glued on a rectangle for a tree trunk on each page, and added details – winter – they drew branches, spring they tore light green paper and added bits of pink cotton balls.  Summer – they tore green paper and added apples by dipping a pencil eraser in red paint ( tearing paper is great for strengthening fine motor), Fall – they dipped squares of tissue into glue and added them to the tree trunk.
