In the Classroom: Johnny Appleseed

Melisa Cadell subbed for Ms. Houchard’s 3rd grade class at Gouge Elementary. The day was scheduled in advance, so Melisa was able to plan an entire day of activities around their studies of apples and Johnny Appleseed. Students taste-tested different varieties of apples and talked about the importance of cultivating orchards. They tracked the travels of Johnny Appleseed on a map and crated books in which they collected details about the life of Johnny Appleseed. To illustrate the books they carved relief images into scraps of apples from the taste testing and made prints.
