Just for Students and Teachers!

Did you know?

  • The “apple Polishing” custom hails from little red school houses of yore. Young children sought to win their teacher’s favor with a bright, shiny apple when their math skills were less than exemplary. Remember this song? “An apple for the teacher will always do the trick when you don’t know your arithmetic.” 
  • Apples are grown in every state in the continental United States and grown commercially in 36 states.
  • About 2,500 known varieties of apples are grown in the United States and more than 7,500 varieties are grown worldwide.
  • The story that Newton discovered the law of gravity after watching an apple fall from a tree is probably backwards. It is thought to have evolved from his use of an apple’s fall to illustrate the pull of gravity.
