Tuesday January 27th Applesauce Day! Many pictures

Today we continued talking about nutrition and moved on to the fruit group.  We learned that vitamins in fruits like vitamin C help keep our teeth healthy and fight germs.  Just like with the grain group and protein group, Mrs. Robb created an edible example for the class!  The morning was spent preparing apples to be made into applesauce.  Students helped slice and peel apples.  Cinnamon and sugar were added to the apples, with just a bit of lemon juice, before being cooked in the crock pot for 4 hours during the afternoon.  The room was filled with the smell of apples and cinnamon for the rest of the day while the students waited patiently to eat their homemade apple sauce.  When the timer went off the students could not wait to eat.  Finally after music each student got their cup of applesauce to enjoy!

During math the timer went off, as you can imagine there was quite a bit of excitement in the air!
