Celebrating Johnny Appleseed and the Fall Season!

What a wonderful back to school season it’s been so far!

We began our apple theme earlier this month with a lesson on legendary pioneer Johnny Chapman, who was born on September 26, 1774. Johnny was known to many as Johnny Appleseed, and was a pioneer who introduced apple trees to large parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and West Virginia. He became an American legend due to his kind and generous ways, and his leadership in conservation.

We celebrated Johnny’s birthday on Friday, September 25th with a ton of apple fun that included apple picking, tasting and graphing our favorite apples. We had lots of fun learning activities and singing about Johnny Appleseed!
