Most of the time when we cut through an apple, we cut it in half from top to bottom. But, the coolest thing is that if you cut it in half through the middle, there is a star shape inside!
Anya and I spent some time talking about apples and what colors they come in. We taste tested the different colored apples and we talked about how apples grow.
Then, we cut the apple in half through the middle and talked about the apple core. The star shape holds the seeds so that new apple trees can grow. It was a fun discovery to look at each part of the star and see if it was holding seeds and then count how many all together.
After that, we used the apple as a stamp and made a little apple star card. The poem on the left says:
There's a star inside an apple!
It's a miracle indeed,
That this sweet and juicy apple
Was once a tiny seed!
I hope you have fun discovering how cool apples can be!
