PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A few years ago I was looking for books and ideas for my apple theme unit. I was introduced to How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World by Marjorie Priceman and immediately fell in love with the book! The book is unique in several ways: It is written in RARE second person point of view, it gives the reader a list of things to do in order to make apple pie, it has a world map inside the front of the book, it familiarized the reader with different parts of the world, and it contains a recipe for apple pie in the back. It even gives the reader the notion of writing a sequel to the book! Although I have used the book for a broad thematic unit, this lesson focuses on economics and geography.
Standards/Objectives: This lesson is based on Mississippi standards for grade 3, but can easily be adapted to other states’ standards and grade levels.
Economics
Understand basic economic concepts and their effects on our community.
1. Identify the ways in which a community depends upon other communities to provide for its wants and needs and goods and services. (DOK 2)
2. Identify resources and scarcity of resources within the community. (DOK 1)

Geography
Understand the interdependence of people, places, and environment that make up the local community.
3. Use social studies tools (e.g., time lines, maps, globes, compasses, graphs, grids, and technological resources, etc.) to describe the connections among the people, places, and environment of the community. (DOK 2)
4. Use maps and globes to find relative and absolute locations in regard to different communities (e.g., longitude, latitude, and spatial perspective). (DOK 1)
This lesson contains the complete lesson plan for social studies (economics and geography) for a full week. I also have two other related lessons available for download purchase on TpT: “Imperative Apple Pie in Second Person”, a lesson about point of view (mainly second person) and imperative sentences, and “How to Make an Apple Pie…Spelling and Vocabulary List and Activities”. Both of these lessons are also based on the book How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World.

On  October 15, 2012Renee Fairchild answered:
I checked the original file, and there are indeed 11 pages just as the description states. The first page is, of course, the cover page which is used as a free preview; page 2 contains the objectives for economics and geography, materials needed, necessary vocabulary, etc. Pages 3 and 4 are the lesson plans for one week; page 5 is the tree map for the different types of resources; pages 6 and 7 are the maps used in the activity where the students trace the travels in the book; the remaining 4 pages are the cards to be used in the categorizing activity. Hope this helps. I have really put a lot of effort into planning this lesson, so I hope it will be valuable for you. Thanks!
