Apple Day

Movement Lesson
for Apple Day

The students will act out picking apples and putting them in baskets.


  • Music, if desired.

  • An open area for movement



  1. Discuss with the students the steps required in reaching to pick apples and bending over to place them in a bushel basket.

  2. Play music, if desired, and have the students reach, pick, and place the apples.

Other Lesson Ideas

  1. Play "Toss the Apples in the Baskets".  However, use balls instead of real apples.  This could be made in to a type of relay race.

  2. Have the students imitate an apple seed growing - starting out small, sprouting, and moving upward.

  3. Have an 'apple hunt'.  Hide apples (real or paper ones) around the classroom or outside and have the students hunt for apples.

  4. Work as a class to make up an apple song to a familiar tune, such as "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star".  For example, "Shiny, Shiny, Little Apple".
