I LOVE celebrating Johnny Appleseed during September. The book "Who was Johnny Appleseed?" by Joan Holub is a wonderful resource to use when teaching the life of John Chapman to older kids. I've created these guided reading activities to go along with the book. This product contains comprehension questions for all 10 chapters (plus the introduction chapter). There are also vocabulary cards (colored and b/w), comprehension sheets, vocabulary activities, and more!
