Then we cut the apple open and observed it's insides. Of course we had to wrap the lesson up by tasting it.
Today we focused more on the word "properties". I brought the apple back out and we observed it again. We revisited our observation chart from yesterday. Today we specifically discussed color, texture, mass, size, and shape. We made this chart together. I based the words on the ideas that were generated yesterday.
We had a brief discussion on the meaning of mass. We did not explore this concept in depth today because we will be talking about it more tomorrow. We watched this short video for a demonstration of heavy and light.
We made and painted paper sack apples. After they dried we reviewed the properties of an apple and all that we had learned. Then we labeled our apples with its properties.
