Who was Johnny Appleseed? Was he a real person? What did he do? Did he love nature? I will answer these questions, and many more! 5 minutes- This will be spent building background knowledge and discussing what learners may already know about Johnny Appleseed. 15-20 minutes- I will read the story "Johnny Appleseed". I will stop frequently to discuss what we've read, point out details from pictures, touch on western expansion, explain why things may have happened the way they did,...
Students will learn about the time period and the life of Johnny Appleseed.
I was 1st grade teacher with a minor in history. History intrigues me and inspires me to want to share it with the world! People who have helped to shape the world, as we know it today, should never be forgotten.
Homework is optional. I will be sharing a few handouts with parents that children can do if they wish. Some additional ideas for homework are as follows: 1. Write a short summary/story about Johnny Appleseed and draw a picture to go with it. 2. Make a paper hat shaped like a pot and pretend they are Johnny Appleseed. 3. Plant apple seeds and watch them grow :).
I will be reading the book "Johnny Appleseed" Level 1 by Patricia Demuth. It is not necessary for you to purchase this book for this lesson. This book is not currently available for purchase but if you would like to purchase a slightly higher leveled book (by the same author) it is available on Amazon for $3.99. Paper, pencil, crayon/markers (in case we have time to draw a picture at the end of the lesson :)).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will be assessed through observation and discussion throughout the lesson.
