How Would You Say This Sentence In German (Dative Case)

The Sentence I want to say is:

The girl gives an apple a man

Would I say Das Madchen gibt einem Mann ein Apfel

Also when I do write this do I have to change the 'Ei n' behind apple to einem as it is the Dative Case or is it just the indirect object that the action is being preformed to. I would love to hear some replies and thank you to everyone who does!

Mann is in dative, Apfel in accusative. So you have it almost right but you still have to change the EIN to EINEN for Apfel:

Das Madchen gibt einem Mann einen Apfel.


Das Mädchen gibt einem Mann einen Apfel
