Born John Chapman (1774 – 1847), Johnny Appleseed was a pioneering American nurseryman best known for planting orchards of apple trees in Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. Today’s websites include a mix of craft sites for kindergarten and early elementary grades, and a couple of biography sites for older students researching school reports.

Apple Appetite: Johnny Appleseed
http://www.appleappetite.com/Johnny.htm
***
I chose this particular Johnny Appleseed bio page because it goes beyond the usual tall tale, and includes some interesting links. My favorite click is to a photo reproduction of a “Harper’s New Monthly Magazine” article written just twenty-six years after Chapman’s death. You’ll find it in the More Details section. “The first reliable trace of our modest hero finds him in the Territory of Ohio, in 1801, with a horse-load of apple seeds.”

About Homeschooling: Johnny Appleseed Printables

*****
Beverly Hernandez, the About.com guide to Homeschooling, has created ten printable Johnny Appleseed activity sheets, including a word search puzzle, a crossword puzzle, an alphabet activity, a tic-tac-toe game, a coloring page and more. Below the list of ten printables, you’ll find links to related topics, such as an Apple Thematic Unit, Apple Crafts, and Apple Recipes. Other themes and holidays can be found under the Holidays and Seasons link in the left-hand menu.

DLTK: Apples and Johnny Appleseed Crafts and Coloring
http://www.dltk-kids.com/crafts/miscellaneous/apple.html
*****
DLTK is my pick-of-the-day for Johnny Appleseed crafts and apple activities. Here are just a few of the creative ideas you’ll find at DLTK: a Johnny Appleseed song (with sheet music and lyrics in both English and Spanish), apple coloring pages, apple-themed printable note pages, an apple poem for parents, a paper mache apple pencil holder, and a list of apple sayings. “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”
