Johnny Appleseed Day in Second Grade

This week, our second graders learned how John Chapman became known as Johnny Appleseed. In a literacy unit our second graders read many tall tales about Johnny Appleseed and saw how Johnny loved helping people and planting apple trees. We read about his dream of spreading apple orchards all across the western states. September 26 was John Chapman’s birthday, and our classes celebrated with a Johnny Appleseed Day Celebration. Each student brought an apple snack and we made apple sauce to enjoy in honor of Johnny Appleseed. Our second graders are thankful for Johnny’s love of apples and for planting so many apple trees in our country.Johnny Appleseed (Second Grade)
