Apple Graphing

Apple season is here!  I love the colorful variety of apples God created, and apple graphing is the perfect way for young learners to work on hands on math skills.

To kick off our apple unit study J-Bug and I took a trip to the grocery store and purchased one of each  type of apple sold there.

I uses colored pencils and a ruler to draw the lines on a piece of paper to make a graph.  I wrote each apple color in the corresponding colored pencil, so J-Bug could easily identify the word.

Using foam stickers to graph apples by color

Colored paper or crayons could easily be used in place of the foam stickers.  I liked the added benefit of boosting fine motor skills in this activity.  Besides, what child doesn't enjoy using stickers?

When the graph was complete I asked J-Bug questions like, "Which color had the most?", "Which color had the least?", and "How many green apples were there?" to extend the math lesson.
