Mrs. Pospisil's Class Learned About Apples

Mrs. Pospisil's first grade class had a great week learning about Apples. At the end of the week, students got to try three different kinds: Red Delicious, Honeycrisp, and Granny Smith. After tasting all three kinds, students picked their favorite one and graphed their choice. We analyzed and answered questions about the graph.
