It’s the scent of apple season around the corner!
As much as I love summer (and I do), fall is easily my next favorite season. And one of the reasons I love fall so much has to do with apples.
I’ll be honest here. I have never been apple picking. But it’s definitely on my bucket list to try with the kids.
I have, however, used apples as an early childhood theme for years (like almost all primary teachers).
And I’m excited to share a brand new apple-themed early resource: Apple Alike! Apple Same or Different Worksheets!
This is a wonderful and simple way to practice visual discrimination with early learners during fall!
Read on to see how you can use this with your students and to find out how to get your copy.

Apple Alike! Apple Same or Different Worksheets
To use these apple same or different worksheets with students, you’ll need the following: (This post contains affiliate links. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)
- Printer (with ink)
- Printer paper or Astrobright paper (optional)
- Laminator (optional)
- Dry erase markers (optional)
This product includes:
- Two color “Find the Same Apples” activities
- Two color “Find the Different Apple” activities
- Blackline versions of all worksheets
- Answer key
- And instructions for use!
There are two activities that help students practice recognizing the same object, as well as two that help students practice spotting the different object.
The answer key shows the correct choices for each activity. Easy grading for the win!
The color version features brightly colored apples to engage students.
The blackline version for each activity still features the differences in pattern for students to spot each activity.
Apple Visual Discrimination Activity for Centers
You can also make this into a center visual discrimination activity in just a few steps!
I like my center activities to be a little smaller, so I tend to print the pages at half size. But you can use them at full size, if you like.
After you print each page, laminate it.
Then use a hole punch to place a hole in the top left corner of each page.
For centers, I prefer to use the color version, but if you prefer to use the blackline, AstroBright paper adds a nice pop of color!
Once you finish punching holes, use a ring or a paper fastener to connect them.
Let students use them with dry erase markers over and over again!
