Grafting Apple Trees PBL Project

Sweet, sour, bitter, bland, juicy, crisp, soft, mushy. These are all adjectives that can be used to describe apples! But how did we get so many types of this fruit, and how can we (gasp) make even more? In the PBL Project "Grafting Apple Trees," students will learn about the value and importance of apple cultivation. Students will learn how to make different grafts and will graft apple trees as a final project. Apples are the easiest of apples to graft, though most fruits can be easily grafted. Lessons in this agriculture lesson include: Lesson 1- Sample apple varieties and learn where apple cultivation originated. Lesson 2- Learn the different types of grafts Lesson 3- Practice grafting Lesson 4- Graft apple scions to apple trees This project is brought to you by Deborah Hughes with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team and detailed coordination provided by Team Lead Laura Gallardo.
