Johnny Appleseed {Freebies!}


We learned all about Johnny Appleseed this week!  The kids LOVED it! :)

We started by doing some activities on BrainPOP Jr.  If you've never used BrainPOP...it is AWESOME!  The Johnny Appleseed activities are FREE right now!

{There are some free activities, but most of them require a subscription.  I'm so so so lucky my school has a subscription, but you can also sign up for a one week free trail!}

We watched the video about Johnny Appleseed (only about 4 minutes) and then put pictures of his life in order.  There are a few other activities, too!

There's also a great video on Discovery Education.  It's free to create an account.

We read Johnny Appleseed: a tall tale retold and illustrated by Steven Kellogg.


We compared the book to the BrainPOP video and of course made an anchor chart, which I forgot to take a picture of!

They wrote facts about Johnny Appleseed on the lines and drew a picture in the apple.

We also made hats!  They each cut out a name plate and glued it to the middle of a sentence strip.  Then they colored and cut out the apples to glue on each side.  They thought these were soooo funny!

Sorry I don't have a picture of the finished product. :(

We also counted, tallied, and graphed our favorite apple treats.

Hope you can use some of these activities in your classroom next week!

Enjoy the weekend!
