September 26 is Johnny Appleseed's birthday. We celebrate in my classroom by reading the story Johnny Appleseed by Steven Kellogg. This will be the springboard to my folktale unit as we will learn the elements of tall tales in folk literature.
The children will practice map skills in Social Studies related to the story. I created a map activity that I am sharing. You will need a blank map of the United States. The one that I am using comes from Super Teacher Worksheets.
Do you celebrate Johnny Appleseed in your classroom?
