Johnny Appleseed

g

Students in Mrs. Porter's first grade class recently studied Johnny Appleseed, whose real name was John Chapman. In honor of his birthday on September 26, the students read various pieces of literature about him, discussed the definition of tall tales and then discussed which elements of the tall tale of Johnny Appleseed were true and which ones were exaggerated. Additionally, they learned a song about him, enjoyed a story about "a little red house with no windows and no doors and a star inside," and conducted an apple tasting and created a graph of their favorite apple.
