This download contains a biographical reading comprehension passage about John Chapman (Johnny Appleseed). Students will read a full page passage about the man to answer 4 multiple choice questions and 1 short answer question. Students will also identify true and false statements by cutting and gluing statements. Students will color apples to identify rhyming words. A writing extension is also included, as students will write on the prompt "Johnny Appleseed was a very kind man. Write about a time that you were kind to someone.".
This passage and its activities are geared toward a first grade level. It can be a great resource to include Johnny Appleseed's birthday (September 26) celebration into your lessons. Use as a homework assignment or include in substitute plans for the fall.
I have these activities geared toward other grades as well.
