Under the guidance of instructors from Nassau BOCES, kindergartners at Kramer Lane Elementary School learned about the history of apple cider by making their own.

During the program, naturalists Dana Kindness and Kimberly Uresk educated students about the history of apple cider, where apples are grown and different properties of apples, including their various colors, sizes and tastes. 

Using an apple cider press, students paired up to put apples through the machine, where they turned a lever to compress the apples and watch the tasty juice form. 

The program concluded with students sampling the cider and sharing their favorite ways to eat apples, including apple pie, applesauce and apple juice.
