Johnny Appleseed Inspires Mathematicians

When you walk into Mrs. Rokes’ Kindergarten class at Cody Elementary, it’s a burst of color and sound, and on September 29, 2017, the smell of apples!  Students spent the week learning about Johnny Appleseed and his creation — the apple.  They made their own applesauce, taste-tested different kinds of apples, and made works of apple art.  Each lesson taught students something without them even knowing it, like how to work as a team, how to talk about their opinions, and dexterity skills, like cutting and gluing.  The week culminated in a visit from Johnny Appleseed himself (well, herself) and a math lesson.  The kindergartners ate an apple sauce and drank an apple juicebox and then decided which one they liked best.  They counted up the numbers on each side and then drew a bar graph, learning that graphs help them see easily which group won.
