Chalk Dust and Dreams


I love teaching a unit about Johnny Appleseed. It is a perfect fit with my Back-to-School/apple unit and it also meshes perfectly with my “Kindness Counts” initiative. In my opinion, he is just a lovable folk hero.

This packet has a variety of things to do that bring math, history, reading, science, cooperative learning, and word work together into a common theme. I always end the unit with an apple festival. We make applesauce, drink apple juice, sample apple pie, run apple relay races, and much more.

I know you will enjoy making this unit part of your back-to-school fun! Here's to Happy Kids and Happy Teaching!
