Apples to Apples

Image of Apples to Apples Game Logo

This weekend was our first touch of fall. The weather was cool and a bit rainy so our outdoor plans changed. We played a game that I had watched my daughter and her friends play many times, Apples to Apples,  a game of comparisons. I kept thinking how really educational the game was and the way it had the players use their background knowledge to make connections.  I also kept thinking that September usually means Apple Time for many teachers. So, I decided to post some resources similar to the Apples to Apples game and links to make your time of studying Apples more sweet!
