While my children are in preschool and elementary school, we study apples each and every year. What is fall without eating fresh apples while reading apple books?!
Some years we have worked on big unit studies (fun!), and other years we just read lots of apple books and do taste-testing. Last year, we went to the apple orchard and made fresh, homemade cider, learned all about apples, and toured the orchard grounds.
This year, my Kindergarten Boy and I are reading through some apple books, taste testing, and he will narrate the Life Cycle of an Apple to me using this apple booklet.
Note: This packet was originally published in 2014. Then it was updated in 2017. Now, it is completely overhauled for the 2022 Apple Picking Season! Enjoy!

Apple Life Cycle Booklet
In our studies, we will learn about the life cycle of an apple – from seed to tree to fruit.
Many years ago when all of my girls were young, I stumbled upon making booklets – coloring booklets, vocabulary booklets, writing booklets, and life cycle booklets! My girls loved this style of learning and writing, so there are quite a few selections of those here at Mama’s Learning Corner.
This Apple Life Cycle Booklet can be used in a variety of ways with your young learner:
- Print the Reader’s Version and have your child read the information to you. If he is not yet reading, you read the information to him and possibly point out easier words that your child can recognize.
- Print the blank version and let your child cut out the descriptions for each Life Cycle stage. Once your child properly arranges the steps, he can glue them in place. Help as much as needed with the reading if you choose this version, and adapt it to your child’s level.
- Print the blank version and have your child write in the information about each stage. My Kindergartner is not yet a fan of writing, so I will probably choose this version and have him write one word per page using the Apple Words in the download. If you have older children that are proficient in writing, they can write each description in themselves.
This is an incredibly versatile activity, so adjust and accommodate based on your children’s ages and stages. You can easily use this booklet from Preschool all the way up to 4th or 5th Grade!
Complete directions for assembly are included in the download.
Apple Life Cycle Vocabulary Worksheet
Also included in this printable set is an Apple Life Cycle Vocabulary Worksheet.
Using the words in the word bank, your student will write in the correct term on the line. Since my Kindergartner is not yet reading, we will use this page orally and I will write in the words that he identifies.
Older children can certainly do this type of page independently.
Identify Parts of an Apple Worksheet
Cut & paste – another favorite!
In this Parts of an Apple Worksheet, my boy will cut out the apple words at the bottom of the page and paste them in the correct place on the picture. He will need help sounding them out since he is still such a beginning reader.
