This five senses apple craft and writing activity can be perfectly paired with an apple taste test experiment. Try it in the classroom or at home with your kids.
Fall is a good time to explore different apple varieties. Because my husband loves Honeycrisp apples, I used to choose only this variety. And then one day my oldest had an apple tasting at school and he tried Granny Smith and Golden Delicious apples. He loved them both and sked for them at home too.
So take your apple tasting a step further and write down what you see, taste, smell, see when you eat an apple and what sound does eating an apple make. Explore with all your 5 senses and record what you discover. This will be a fun fall science experiment to include to an apple theme.
Because apple tasting may involve apples of different colors, Granny Smith for green, Golden Delicious for yellow and Red Delicious for red, we made three versions of our craft, one for each apple color.
