4. Let your kids observe the apple parts in detail.

This apple activity is a quiet, calm STEM activity that allows your kids to explore freely. They can feel the different parts of the apple with their hands, sniff them to see how they smell, and even taste the skin by itself. Just be careful they do not ingest the seeds or stem!

Parts of an Apple Printable Worksheets

There are two worksheets in the parts of an apple printable. One is the “answer key” where you see all the parts of the apple labeled.

The other is a cut and paste worksheet where your child can use scissors to cut out the words and glue them to the boxes provided. Preschoolers may need to use the answer key for reference to match the words to the corresponding boxes. Kindergarteners may be able to read and match the labels without any help.
