The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.
Cut an 8 1/4" circle from cardstock or chipboard. Cut a 6 1/4" circle inside the larger circle, leaving a 1" wide ring. Alternately, two ridged paper plates may be glued together with the center cut out to make a ring.
Die-cut three red, two light green and three dark green Apple using cardstock or construction paper.
Place eight various shades of brown paper over the leaf and stem area of the Apple and die-cut. Cut the stems and adhere to the Apples (see Main Photo).
Place eight various shades of green paper over the leaf area of the Apple and die-cut. Cut the leaves and adhere to the stem on the Apples.
Use chalk or crayons for highlights.
Adhere the Apples to the ring.
Cut eight small rectangles from white paper and write different adjectives on each. Adhere the adjectives to the Apples.
Each student can make a wreath to describe an apple, or the whole class may participate and hang the Apple wreath on the bulletin board (see Main Photo).
