Yep, I’m going with A for Apple.  There are an so many hands-on activities to do with apples–and they all have to do with math (but make it more fun).  For the topics that are more advanced for your student/child, you can figure out the answer for them and they might enjoy knowing that you can find averages, totals, and more complex info.  Enjoy!

• Go to the store to buy apples.
• How many apples make a pound?  (counting and weight)
• What will be the price the amount you need to buy? (Weigh your apples, then multiply it by the cost per pound to find your total.
• Is your bunch of apples within your budget? (Give a budget amount-like \$3- and have them stay within that amount.)
• Can you figure out the amount of change from your budgeted amount? (money and subtraction)
• Eating apples.
• How many bites does it take you to eat a whole apple? (counting)  How long did that take? (Time it and see!)  Find the average time for each bite. (Take your number of bites divided by the total time.)
• Cut the apple into slices (eighth is probably easiest). (fractions)
• How many slices can you eat? (adding fractions)
• If you have to share the apples with a group–divvy them out equally. (dividing fractions).  Are there any left over?  Can you cut the piece to divide the apples equally?
• Time your group of apple eaters for a minute and count how many apple fractions are left compared to your total. (subtracting fractions)
• Random other ideas…
• Make patterns with colored apples.
• Find the circumference around the circle part of your apple. (geometry measurements)
• How many apples fit in different size bowls. (counting and spacial measurement)
• Make graphs using apples.
• Who in the class likes green vs. red?
What other things can you do with your student/child and APPLES?
