Johnny Appleseed

In September we talked about Johnny Appleseed. We read some books about his life and watched a short video. Then we brainstormed some facts we had learned. In writing everyone wrote about some of the things they had learned about Johnny. We then made Johnny Appleseeds and put the writing on our art project. They look really nice in our hallway at school. Next time you are at school take a look and read our Johnny Appleseed facts.
