One of our favorite fall family traditions is taking our yearly trip to a local apple orchard. There is apple picking, apple tasting, apple cider, apple cider donuts, the corn maze, petting zoo, and more. We usually make an afternoon of it.

One of the highlights for our kids’ is the tasting area where the orchard has 5 or 6 of their featured apples available for the public to sample. Each apple is labeled with their taste characteristics and what the apple is best used for (eating, baking, canning, etc.). I created apple orchard notebooking pages to take advantage of this tasting area and to turn it into a learning experience.
These printables will allow your students to make and record their own observations about apple trees, the characteristics of apples, and anything else about apples and their trip to the orchard they would like to write about.
