One of the fun things about homeschool is being able to customize your curriculum to different themes. For September we are using the theme of apples for learning. I found a cute apple picking field in Mainz and we were able to make a field trip out of it with a local homeschool group last week.
There were several rows with 11 different varieties of apples to choose from.
If you live within an hour or so of Mainz I'd recommend a visit to Appel Happel. You can visit their site HERE for directions, special events and contact info. This coming Saturday (September 22nd) they will be having a big apple festival which looks like loads of fun.
I'll be sharing some of my favorite apple themed activities we have been doing soon!
Willkommen Herbst! (Welcome Fall!)
