In this highly-engaging lesson, students complete three hands-on activities to learn about the life, legacy, and history of John Chapman, or more commonly known as "Johnny Appleseed!"
First, students complete a guided reading assignment that introduces John Chapman's (Johnny Appleseed) main work. Student's learn about Chapman's childhood, his interest in growing orchards, his strong religious desire in the New Order church, and his attitude toward animal rights! This text is uniquely chunked to prevent students from becoming overwhelmed!
Then, students then take their knowledge and put it on display by completing a "Journal Entry" assignment. Students step into the shoes of time traveler who follows Johnny Appleseed around in his travels! Two versions are included to allow for easy modifications between students.
Finally, students complete a close-reading crossword puzzle activity to recap their learning on Johnny Appleseed!
