The fruits of fall are delightful, a splendid display of God's provision and creativity. Ms. Payne's Pre1st class recently took a deep dive, exploring everyone's favorite fruit - the apple!
The lesson takes the students through how apples grow from seeds and what apple trees look like in each season of the year. In this study, they read the book "How to Make an Apple Pie and see the world" by Marjorie Priceman. It presents a geography study and the different cultures the main character encounters as she collects the ingredients to make the apple pie.
Of course, the class also had to make an apple pie. It was an Apple Pie Party! This hands-on experience brought excitement and laughs with some students loving the pie, and some just enjoying the whipped cream topping. Either way, it was a memorable way to learn about apples and offered a tangible example of God's bountiful provision.
He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, and vegetation for the service of man, that he may bring forth the food from the earth. Psalm 104:14
What a wonderful reminder of the richness of God's creation and His generous provision in our lives.
