The students in Anita Davis’ class at the Washington Center learned about apples and pumpkins by taking a virtual trip to a farm, while in their classroom.  

First, they read the book, Apples and Pumpkins by Anne Rockwell.  They learned that apples grow “up high” in the trees and pumpkins grow “down low” in the field.  


A variety of augmentative communication voice output devices and a flipchart were used by the students to answer questions about the story.  Using a classroom display and a basket, the students took turns picking apples and pumpkins.  

After “reaping the harvest,” they sorted apples and pumpkins on the Promethean Board.  
This activity served as preparation for a real fieldtrip to Fisher’s Orchard with three other classes for a  day of autumn experiences.
