Apple picking: les petits au verger

On the 27th of September, the preschool class went apple picking at Sweetser’s Apple Barrel and Orchards, in Cumberland, with the kindergarten class. We learned about the boxes to store the apples and the ladders that are used to pick apples from tall trees. We watched how a machine sorted out the apples according to their size. It was very interesting! We were also able to pick and eat an apple. Some said that it was the best one they had ever eaten! We brought back some apples to school and we made apple sauce. We could not wait to taste it! It was yummy!
