This Project Based Learning Unit, PBL, is an inquiry based step by step unit that uses Johnny Appleseed and his impact on the world to help students make a difference in their school and community. Students work together on a Legacy Project and present it to an audience.
This is also an all inclusive, step by step, informational writing unit on Johnny Appleseed. It includes numerous other activities as well. The most important part is that it is differentiated for 3 levels. This unit is perfect for 1st grade.
Besides the main project the students will spend a total of 4 weeks (more or less) learning about Johnny Appleseed, doing community service around the school, informational writing, going through the writing process, learning about being a citizen, learning about facts, drawing, making crafts, making applesauce, singing and participating in interactive learning.
