It's a one-page "Johnny Appleseed" poster activity. Are you studying apples, or maybe you are looking to celebrate Johnny Appleseed on September 26th? Maybe you are taking a closer look at folk heroes. If so, you students will have fun reviewing some details about John Chapman... AKA Johnny Appleseed and then making connections to him. This makes a great follow up activity to a a video, to a short read aloud, or even use in combination with other activities you have planned.
This is a read and connect poster, which means it presents a few details about the folk hero Johnny Appleseed, and then students connect those details to their own life.
For example, one says: The legend says he rarely wore shoes and people thought he was poor. He often bartered for things even though he had money. What have you bartered for? What did you have to give up?
There are a total of 8 details and writing response opportunities on the poster activity. As you can see from the thumbnail image, the students are not writing much about each one, just a few sentences.
Kids are excited to share about themselves, as well as getting to know their classmates, so this poster provides the perfect opportunity for you to learn about your students and for the students to learn a little about each other.
This poster will look great hanging outside your classroom, and parents will enjoy reading them when they are sent home.
The Johnny Appleseed activity has plenty of places for students to add their own creative touches with color as they color the black and white themed pictures.
Your students will have fun sharing about themselves, and you will have fun learning about your new class.
