An Apple A Day

Wednesday, September 26 was the anniversary of John Chapman's birth. John Chapman is more commonly known as Johnny Appleseed. He introduced apple trees to parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois.

We prepared for his birthday by making paper stained-glass apples to decorate our hallway. To begin, the students drew lines on their apples with rulers. They then colored each section, outlined the sections with black, cut them out and glued their apples on colored construction paper.

On Wednesday, we sampled four varieties of apples: Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Granny Smith and Pink Lady.

The general consensus was: Delicious! Happy Birthday, Johnny Appleseed.

Giraffe #124 likes the apple that matches her bib.
