The students brought them back to the classroom where they washed and cut them with plastic knives. These apples were then put into a slow cooker for several hours to make apple sauce. The children were delighted by their home-made applesauce which they ate at snack time in the classroom.
They also weighed them to see which weighed the most - Honeycrisp won and Paula Red was the lightest!
Keeping with the apple theme, Mrs. Gatti brought a juice processor to school and the students made their own apple juice. Each student washed their hands before picking 4 or 5 slices of apples to put into the machine.
The students squealed with laughter as some of the apple halves jumped out of the juicer and back on to the desk!
