Preparing for Fall …. Apples!

Preparing for Fall …. Apples!

Late summer and early autumn is such a lovely time of the year here in South East Canada. The leaves start changing colors, the heat and humidity become tolerable, the days are shorter, the night air turns crisp. The selection of local produce (esp. apples) is incredible. So logically we always include Apples in our studies!

We’ve created a basic starter unit on apples, apple cards and apple matching – we hope this gets your studies off to a great start!

    3. Match the single cards together using the traditional “Memory Game”.
    AppleMM-3
    The cards are mixed up and placed face down (in an organized fashion). The first player turns 2 cards face up in hopes of making a match. If the 2 cards match they are placed together off to the side. If the 2 cards do not match, they are turned face down again in the same spot. The next player has a turn trying to find a match. This game is excellent for increasing memory skills.
