Students in Ms. Falzarano’s kindergarten class at Kramer Lane Elementary School in the Bethpage Union Free School District learned how to make apple cider in an interactive, hands-on lesson led by Mary Watros and Bette Bass from Nassau BOCES. Students were taught how to crush and strain fresh apples to make apple cider with a traditional cider press in the school’s STEM Lab. During the lesson, the enthusiastic kindergartners pretended to be apple seeds and were taught how they can grow – with some soil, water and lots of sunshine. 

While the students were not able to drink the cider they pressed themselves, the kindergartners were treated to some freshly made apple cider from the Jericho Cider Mill. After the activity, students picked which kind of apple treat was their favorite. Among apple sauce, apple cider, apple pie and an apple, apple cider won by only a few votes. The votes will be posted in the STEM lab for other classes to see and compare their preferences.

The activity inspired the students to make apple treats at home, with apple pizza being a very popular choice among them.
