Field Trip: Making Apple Cider

Although I have posted in the past that we have gone to the J.A. McFaul Environmental Center, one of our homeschooling co-ops had a field trip there with a program where the kids could learn how apple cider is made.

Every student received an apple and had to wash it.  They then got to crush it down in an old apple cider making machine.  The apples then were crushed up by the guide.  Then the students were able to taste the cider.

Although this was a cute program, I was actually shocked that she drained the entire cider that they made because it was supposedly dirty.  All those apples put to waste.  She then pulled out ready-made cider for the kids.  The program was far too short, in my opinion, but it was educational.  As you will see, Micah did not like the cider.
