The Apple Life Cycle for Kids
Here are the stages that an apple tree goes through to make apples!
- Apple trees start as tiny seeds, similar to how you plant seeds for flowers.
- The seed is put in the ground and gets sunlight, water, and love from the earth.
Apple Tree Seedling
- The seed becomes a small plant called a seedling.
- It grows taller and sprouts leaves.
- As the seedling gets older, it produces beautiful flowers in spring.
- These flowers are like the tree’s way of saying hello to the world.
Apple Blossom Pollination
- Bees visit the flowers, carrying pollen from one flower to another.
- Pollen helps the flowers create tiny baby apples.
Apple Fruit Growth
- After bee visits, the flowers turn into tiny apples that grow bigger over time.
- When apples are big and colorful, they’re ripe and ready to be picked.
- They taste sweet and delicious, loved by people and animals.
Apple Seeds Inside an Apple
- If you cut open an apple, you’ll find small seeds inside.
- These seeds can be planted to grow new apple trees.
Apple Trees in the Fall
- As the weather gets colder, the tree’s leaves change colors.
- They become red, orange, and yellow, creating a beautiful rainbow effect.
Apple Tree in the Winter
- During winter, the apple tree takes a long nap, resting for the upcoming spring.
