Which liquid will keep apples from turning brown?

That’s the question kindergarten students in Jennifer Richardson’s class at Windsor Elementary School were asked as they learned about apples and pumpkins this week. On Tuesday, October 9th, students made predictions during their apple browning experiment. Which liquid will keep the apples from turning brown?


The results? According to Richardson, lemon juice worked best, with vinegar a close second (“but we decided no one would want to eat the apples after they were covered in vinegar so better to go with lemon juice!”) Some students predicted chocolate milk would work best . . . or perhaps they just wanted it to work best!
