STEAMed apples

First-graders recently learned about Johnny Appleseed, the folk hero based on a real Revolutionary War-era nursery owner, and engaged in apple-related STEAM activities. 

After reading about Johnny Appleseed in their own classes, the students were divided into four groups which took turns working at four different learning stations in the cafeteria. The kids:

–      predicted whether an apple placed into a tub of water would float or sink, then tested their guesses

–      estimated the number of paper clips that would fit into a drawing of an apple 

–      used a scale and compared the weight of an apple to the weight of everyday objects such as a stuffed animal

–      counted the number of teammates who preferred red, yellow, and green apples, then graphed the results

First-graders are still learning how the world works so the hands-on activities helped them explore in a very structured way. The projects also brought together a variety of skills and subjects. 

“The activities combined math, science, language arts, and social skills,” said teacher Jennifer Miller, who co-teaches a class with Tami Davieau. “The students were completely engaged and interested the entire time. And, since the groups were made up of first-graders from all the classes, they interacted with peers they normally don’t work with.”

In addition, the students completed apple activities in their own classes. Ms. Miller’s students created booklets listing facts about Johnny Appleseed, Kelly Wronko’s class solved apple math problems, and Jen Leone’s class worked on apple writing assignments.
