Johnny Appleseed

To conclude our learning about Johnny Appleseed, we got to make applesauce. We invited our principals, office staff, and specials teachers. We made four pots of applesauce and they were all so good. Throughout the week we learned lots of facts about JohnnyAppleseed such as:

His dad fought in the Revolutionary war

He wanted people to be able to plant apple trees as they moved west so he gave them a pouch of apple seeds

He got his apple seeds from the local cider mill

It is probably a tall tale that he wore a pot on his head and that he slept in a log with a bear

He lived off the land for most of his life
