This George the Farmer Educational Resource aims to raise awareness about many of the things the apple industry does to grow, produce, and provide us with healthy apples to eat and enjoy!
There is a maze of terminology that surrounds the cultivation of apples, and navigating your way through can be daunting, but it is not as complex as it looks.
Did you know that apples are classified according to their sweetness as well as whether they are dessert apples, ‘eaters’ or culinary varieties known as ‘cookers’, and whether they are ready for picking early, mid-season or late?
Apple trees are also categorised according to size and shape. In addition, they are grouped according to when their blossom appears.
This free curriculum-aligned educators guide for Foundation - Year 4 levels focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Maths and Sustainability (STEAM) subjects.
The pages in this resource are intended as starting points for a cross-curricular approach to learning, based on the George the Farmer YouTube video “Apples” and accompanying Virtual Reality (VR) video on YouTube or through the FarmVR app.
It is also suggested that students read ‘George the Farmer Hailstorm Heroes’ which is about apples, food waste and sustainability.
The activities seek to complement and extend the enjoyment students will experience from seeing the video and VR, whilst at the same time meeting some of the requirements of curriculum outcomes.
The activities in this resource can be printed out for students, or alternatively, display the activity page from the PDF on your interactive white board or import an activity page into your online teaching and learning environment such as Google Slides and have the students use their existing workbooks to complete the task.
