Students should be able to:

  • Identify parts of an apple- core, seeds, stem, leaf, skin, meat
  • Identify parts of a tree- roots, trunk, branches, fruit, and leaves
  • identify functions of tree parts: roots hold the tree in the ground and soak up water, trunk holds the tree up and carries water to other parts of the tree, the branches carry water to the leave and fruit and hold the leaves and fruit, the leaves use water, sunlight and air to make food for the tree, and the fruit holds seeds to make new trees
  • Identify seasonal changes of trees- bare in the winter, blossoms in the spring, leaves and baby apples in the summer, leaves change colors and apples ripen in the fall
