Life Cycle of an Apple Tree – Torn Paper Apple Trees

Apple are a great theme for the fall. This is a fun and easy to do Apple and book learning for kids!

Torn Paper Apple Trees

We read The Life Cycle of an Apple Tree (Plant Life Cycles) by Tagliaferro and Linda. We learned about the apple tree from seed to a tree full of apples. Then we made our own apple trees.

What you need: glue and construction paper: green, brown, blue & red.
