There’s no better way for our children to learn than through experience and hands-on studying and play! This “Anatomy of an Apple” worksheet set comes in our Apple Unit over at Cultivate Curiosity but can be purchased separately HERE.
Simply cutting an apple up and letting your preschooler explore the different parts while you discuss them together is more than enough to get them interested. The worksheet set takes it a step above and beyond, though.
Separate the parts of the apple. If you’re using the worksheet set, you’ll have all of the vocabulary cutouts, but if you’re making it yourself at home, just write the parts of the apple on sticky notes and place them next to the parts.
If you have a sectioned tray like this one, even better!
Let your child touch, smell, and taste the parts of the apple, and ask them what they think about each component.
Activities like this build confidence in children and spark a science-loving flame. It shows our kids that science really is just the study of the world around us. What’s more primal and interesting than that, to a preschooler that asks a million questions every day?

What I love about activities like this is that they can be enjoyed by children of all different ages. This was a part of our apple unit study for our 3-year-old at the time. Now, here we are a year later, and he loves it just as much – if not more! And now, his little sister gets to join in, too. Over the years, we’ll revisit this activity, and I know that despite the age gap from our youngest to our oldest child, it will still be an exciting and fun activity choice.
Babies and toddlers can explore the components of the apple with their hands and mouths, and preschoolers, kindergarteners, and older children can appreciate the actual study of the apple parts. It hits fine motor skills, language development, literacy, math (count the seeds and different parts), sensory exploration, and so much more.
Purchase the worksheet HERE, and enjoy! Let’s foster a love for science in our little ones as early as possible!
