1-2-3 Come Study Johnny Appleseed With Me!

I've had several requests for some activities about Johnny Appleseed, so I designed this 10-page packet, which will help your students develop their writing skills. 

It includes:johnny appleseed activities, common core johnny appleseed, johnny appleseed facts, facts about johnny appleseed, johnny appleseed's pot hat, johnny appleseed crafts, johnny appleseed lessons, johnny appleseed writing prompts

  • A fact sheet about Johnny Appleseed that the teacher reads.
  • johnny appleseed activities, common core johnny appleseed, johnny appleseed facts, facts about johnny appleseed, johnny appleseed's pot hat, johnny appleseed crafts, johnny appleseed lessons, johnny appleseed writing prompts2 Johnny Appleseed's Pot Hat "craftivities" to test comprehension.  Run off the template on card stock.  Students cover it with aluminum foil. They write in their answers on the "pot handle" strips, trim and staple to make a "flip for facts" booklet about Johnny Appleseed. 
  • If you'd like to make this extra special, take a head shot of each child and enlarge it to 8x10.  Students glue their cooking pot to the top of their head.  If you don't want to use a photo, have students draw a self-portrait. Instead of Johnny Appleseed on the hat, they write their name + Appleseed.johnny appleseed activities, common core johnny appleseed, johnny appleseed facts, facts about johnny appleseed, johnny appleseed's pot hat, johnny appleseed crafts, johnny appleseed lessons, johnny appleseed writing prompts

If you're looking for other Johnny Appleseed activities, I spent several hours searching for some interesting things for my readers.  

To help learn some basic facts, and include singing into your day, there's a Johnny Appleseed song on YouTube that's under 2 minutes.

A while back, Disney came out with a Johnny Appleseed movie It's only 17 minutes long and can be viewed on YouTube. This would make a nice culminating activity to your Johnny Appleseed studies.

I use coloring pages to make worksheets with letters, numbers, shapes etc.  I also turn them into math sheets and connect the dots via skip counting. When my students are done with the task at hand, they can color the picture.  I'm always on the lookout for coloring pages that fit my theme.  A Johnny Appleseed coloring page can be found at this link.  Martin also has a Johnny Appleseed coloring page, as well as education world.
