We picked up a wagon, a basket and headed out to the orchard. I showed him how to choose an apple and how to pick the apple. The apples were nice a big, for the most part, and the tree branches hung low so I really did not have to pick him up to pick!
He did a great job and did not want to stop. We had about 6 pounds of apples but that is OK because I am planning a lot of kitchen activities using the apples!
I made sure to use important vocabulary words to reiterate the activity. I just want to make sure he remembers the process of obtaining apples; they come from trees, they must be picked from trees and it is hard work!
This is a great opportunity for real world experience! Go pick some apples!
