There are two apple trees for this game. The first has apples numbered 1-6 on it. Children choose a partner and take turns rolling a die. Whatever number they roll they color the matching numbered apple on their apple tree. The child who completes their apple tree, or the one with the most apples filled in, when the timer rings, is the winner.
Older students can use the second apple tree with numbers 7-12 on it. Children practice their addition skills by first rolling one die to fill in numbers 1-6 and then using 2 dice to roll numbers 7-12. They get these numbers by adding the dice together.
There are 3 Life Cycle of an Apple craftivities in this packet + 2 different apple life cycle templates to choose from. Children can color, cut and glue their life cycle to an apple, apple tree, or apple pie plate, or use the photographs instead of the coloring clip art.
This packet will be FREE for an entire year, after which time it will be up-dated and rolled into my 33-page Life Cycle of an Apple Activities packet in my TpT shop.
