Hands-on Fall Fun at Woodland Elementary School

Hands-on Fall Fun at Woodland Elementary School
Posted on 10/06/2021

Second grade students in Mrs. Pinsky’s class at Woodland Elementary School came together to make homemade applesauce as part of a fall-themed activity. Mrs. Pinsky peeled and chopped the apples at home, then during class, each student scooped apples into the crockpot. They also added cinnamon, sugar and water as part of the hands-on activity. 

As the applesauce cooked throughout the day, the second graders were able to observe how it changed. The interactive lesson also included writing out the recipe instructions, allowing students to practice sequencing.
