The best part is that they are learning about the life cycle of an apple as they create it. My apple is red, but go ahead and add a bit of variety of your own and print the apple patterns on red, yellow, and light green paper. Perhaps your students could pick the color of their favorite type of apple.
Oh, did I mention that they also had caramel apple cookies in the bakery at the apple orchard too. Now that's what I need a recipe for!
