3rd Grade- Cider Press

coring apples

Edison students in Mrs. Donohue and Mrs. Charnofsky's class hosted Edison volunteer Elaine Gust and her cider press for a day of apple magic.  Former Edison teachers, current staff, ASU Service Learning Interns and parents all came together to crush 40 pounds of apples into juice and learn about the science of how we get our food.

Students used their muscles to crank the wooden press and crush the apples into juice.  Students also used apple coring machines to slice apples to enjoy eating.  It was a great experience for all involved and we thank Mrs. Gust for her hours of volunteering service at Edison.  She made it a day that our students will never forget.  No blood, no spit, no snot into the press was a chant we won't soon forget.
