During apple week, the early childhood students read a book and learned about John Chapman, aka Johnny Appleseed. They loved hearing the story of how he shared his apples with friends he met along his journey and planted apple seeds everywhere he went. They liked the ending of the book that asked them to think about the apple trees and orchards they see today might have been started by Johnny Appleseed.
Each student brought a cooking pot to school and we went outside to the grassy area behind the playground. They each had a cup of grass seed and scattered grass seed in the grassy area.
This was a great activity for preschool students to act out what they read and heard in a book. They can have a first-hand experience at what they read and heard.
