The Donna Lee Lovebugs love science and cooking!
Since apples are plentiful this time of year, each Lovebug brought an apple to school for us to compare, sort, measure, investigate, and record the data. Then we used all of the apples to make applesauce.
First we had to read the recipe and follow the directions. We washed our apples, chopped them, and added all of the extra ingredients to the cooking pot. The "secret" ingredient is brown sugar! Yummy!
While we waited for it to cook, we did an experiment with apples: Does the inside of an apple change color after it is cut? We predicted and recorded the data in our Science Journals.
After PE, we checked on our experiment and wrote down the results.
Science and cooking is just a favorite with this age group. Plus, you get to eat your work!
