Do you teach an apple unit in the fall? If so, here are a few apple videos I found that are a perfect fit!
This is the cutest song! Kids will love the way he says “applesauce” and get a kick out of singing this one.
The Learning Station makes great quality children’s videos. Here is their version of “Way Up High in an Apple Tree”.
The Learning Station’s video of the classic “Apples and Bananas” song is a fun one too.
Books Read Aloud
Hands down, this is my favorite apple video! Dr. Seuss’ “Ten Apples Up On Top” sung in the style of Jason Mraz. It’s adorable!
Here’s another classic apple book, Ten Red Apples by Pat Hutchins.
How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World by Marjorie Priceman is a must-read for any apple unit.
Informational Apple Videos
Students ask an apple farmer questions about apples and the apple life cycle in this fantastic eleven minute video.
See first hand what happens to apples once they’re picked to prepare them for the grocery store. I suggest skipping the short intro and starting the video at 0:25.
A young girl walks through the steps of making an apple pie, complete with a kid-friendly recipe. You might show this video after reading The Apple Pie Tree by Zoe Hall or How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World by Marjorie Priceman. Check out my previous post for a FREE “How to Make an Apple Pie” writing activity that goes hand-in-hand with these books.
Apple Art Project
A quick and simple apple art project tutorial that kids of all ages will enjoy.
You might use these videos:
- at the beginning or end of your apple lessons
- at the beginning or end of the day
- for a center activity
- for early finishers
- when you need to fill a little bit of time
These apple videos and many more can be found on my Apples playlist on YouTube. They’re also incorporated into my APPLES unit for kindergarten and first grade. This unit includes detailed daily lesson plans that focus on science, math, reading, writing, handwriting, art, music, games, and more.
