I had such fun making my apple fraction printable, I thought it would be fun to make another for a younger crowd!
This time, we’re giving the littles something to do. I designed this apple printable for preschoolers to learn the life cycle of apples.
Bo isn’t quite old enough for it, but she would still enjoy coloring it. Monkey said she actually preferred the life cycle printable to the fraction printable, but it is probably because she has to work at the fraction printable and she can do the sequencing printable in her sleep.
Apple Science: Apple Tree Life Cycle
This project provides the most basic scientific exploration into the life cycle of apple trees. Children can follow along with the apple seed as it grows from a seed, to a sprout, to a blossoming tree, to a leafy tree, to fully grown apples, and finally to picked apples ready to eat or plant again. (I’ve given away the answer to the printable, but I doubt many preschoolers are reading this blog).
Simply click on the image below to access the PDF file for your apple tree life cycle printable. Please do not share a direct link to the PDF. Direct visitors to this page if you want to share the printable with them. Thanks!
Take Your Apple Study Further
If you want to take your apple study further, you can easily expand this printable into a day or even a week-long unit study on apple trees.
I really like this little animated video on the life cycle of apple trees. It’s short and to the point, and cute, so wins on all levels.
This little apple booklet from Spell Out Loud also has some really informative printables for the preschool level that are a bit more science-oriented.
A Teaching Mommy also has some really fun apple activities for the preschool level.
These three supplements can help round out any preschool unit study.
Typically, though, we stick to one thing at a time. No shame in keeping things simple!
