Take Your Life Cycle of Apple Tree Activities to the Next Level
Looking for a simple yet super cool way to learn about the apple tree life cycle? Here’s a fantastic free printable activity for making a diorama all about it!
As my boys get older, I find myself looking for new ways to make learning fun in our homeschool. We love to chat about some of our favorite activities and why we had such a blast with them. And some of those activities have been all about trees 🌳
Last year, I surprised my boys with this tree life cycle activities pack. They like having a variety of ways to learn about trees. And I loved how easy it was to enjoy print-and-go learning fun 😉
As we started planning and preparing for our back to homeschool fun, the boys brought up those tree life cycle activities. That’s why I thought this 3D printable diorama featuring life cycle of an apple tree would be a great way to add some hands-on activities to our learning fun!

Cool Ideas on How to Make This Life Cycle Diorama
I recommend printing these pages on white cardstock. Your diorama will be more durable and easy to work with. Oh, and you may want to print out extra copies in case one of your students wants to make an extra diorama or accidentally tears a tab.
Here’s a list of supply ideas that you can use as you make your diorama:
- glue or gluestick
- tape (or double-sided tape)
- coloring tools (if using the black-and-white version) like:
- color pencils
- fine-tip markers
I’ve found it best to make the activity ahead of time. It makes it easier for me to explain to my boys and break down the steps. Also, I like having an example as I show the boys what I did. It’s also fun to hear their suggestions of how they’d like to create their own diorama!
You can totally make this apple life cycle diorama as it is. OR you could find a box about the size of the diorama and place it in there.
The steps that my boys took to make this diorama are:
- Print out diorama kit on white cardstock.
- Pick out which style you’d like to use (color or black-and-white).
- Color in background and pieces (if necessary).
- Cut out background and pieces.
- Assemble the background by folding in a forward direction at all dotted lines.
- Smear glue on front part of each tab.
- Fold in all sections and adhere tab.
- Use tape to reinforce tab.
- Glue and attach diorama pieces.
- Add glue to tab of label and attach to top of diorama box.
You can use these fun apple life cycle printables for interactive activities. Chat with your young learners about the correct order of the various stages of the apple tree. Encourage your older students to point out and explain it all to gain a better understanding of the process.
