Johnny appleseed books for first grade. Children are sure to be fascinated by the eccentric and legendary johnny appleseed a man who is best known for bringing apple trees to the midwest. The perfect biography to bite into at the start of a new school year. Based on years of research memoria press second grade curriculum is the fourth year of our planned junior k 12 classical christian curriculum. Few books however exist on this man who has become almost a myth.
Johnny appleseed is a legend who captures the imagination. However i was determined this year to make it tangible and meaningful for my students. I know because after reading this book i tried to find a more in depth grownup book that would tell me more about this man. Cause and effect is not always the easiest concept for students to grasp.
Our 2nd grade uses trophies so i created some activities that were on the instructional level of my students but coordinated with the stories in the reader. Please let me know if you find any sites broken or inappropriate.
