John Chapman aka. Johnny Appleseed

What better time to do a Johnny Appleseed study than fall. Jack and Caroline took part in a Johnny Appleseed lapbook this month in preparation for our trip to Huber's next week. He was a very interesting man, not quite sure why he wore a pot on his head. Maybe it made it easier to carry???

I found a free Johnny Appleseed lapbook on Homeschool Share http://www.homeschoolshare.com/johnny_appleseed.php

They got to take five different varities of apple, tasted each one them picked out their favorite. That was a rather expensive experiment, five apples with only three or four bits out of them went into the trash. We are going to make homemade applesauce next week after we buy our favorite apples from Huber's.

Nothing better then a little history and cooking lesson to go together!!!!
