This Weeks Ag in the Classroom, Oklahoma Apples!

Thu, 15 Oct 2020 14:35:33 CDT

This Weeks Ag in the Classroom, Oklahoma Apples! Whether your kids are doing blended learning, online learning, or back in school, its always nice to have a few extra resources and fun things to do as a family! Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom has come up with some excellent daily activities you can do with your kids and family.

For this week's Ag in the Classroom we are celebrating the fruit trees of Oklahoma Fall! Apples are October's fruit of the month on our AITC resource calendar. Of all the tree fruit crops, apples and peaches are best adapted to Oklahoma conditions. Apples bloom later and are less susceptible to the spring frosts that are common in our state. Oklahoma apples are also susceptible to damage from insects and fungus, so they aren't always the perfect apples you might be accustomed to seeing in the grocery store. However, they are great for making applesauce and pies or for drying.

If you are enjoying Fall Break at home or looking for a fun activity in the classroom when you return to school, follow this link to our Applesauce Oobleck recipe!
