Johnny Appleseed's Birthday--Oct. 26

Anyone doing anything special to celebrate JA's Birthday? I have several activities planned such as a fingerprint apple tree, graphing favorite apples after a tasting test, flow map of the life of an Apple Tree and various books relating to Apples and Johnny Appleseed. Anyone have a good bulletin board for this...I would like to use the children's picture in the board

We are going to make crockpot applesauce (and integrate science-changing states of matter).

I type out the story of JA and cut it into strips. The kids get with a partner and illustrate their page. Then I laminate and put them together and ta-da-- instant big book!

here is my favorite activity. We take pix of the kids with a pot on their head and holding a bag of seeds. Then we give them a piece of long paper divided into fourths and they write their story... the adventures of "Katie" Appleseed. First, next, then , last. We tried to have them write a story but found this time of the year it is easier to just write 4 sentences in order. HOpe if makes sense. They hang in the hallway. They also make a title on an apple cut out. I won't have pix until after we do the project next week though

I am having students bring an apple on Friday. We will be writing about apples pertaining to our senses. It will be on an apple template:
Apples feel _______.
Apples look like _______.
Apples smell _______.
Apples sound like _______.
Apples taste ______.

There is also a story that you tell and at then end cut open the apple and reveal the 'star' inside. The kids really think it's cool (so I better find my story again!).

I am planning on bringing cupcakes (what's a birthday without some cake?!? ) but I'm still looking for a apple cake recipe. I may end up buying minicupcakes and placing a mini apple (or drawing one with icing) on the top. Yummy!

Crock pot recipe for applesauce:

10 large cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced into chunks
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 to 1 cup sugar
Put all ingredients into crock pot. Should be about 3/4 full. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours (high 3 to 4 hours).

I think I'm going to do the crockpot applesauce instead of the cupcakes after reading your recipe. The applesauce will make my room smell so yummy!
Thanks for the link to the story, too.

applesauce recipe

Clip to ScrapBook #12

The last time I did applesauce I used a different recipe so I'm not sure how much this makes. I thought about having a jar of applesauce and/or more chopped apples on hand that I could mix in with it if it didn't make enough. I've also heard that you need one apple per student, but that would depend on the size of the apple. The ones I've seen in stores lately are fairly large.

applesauce

If you are willing to give out small bowls of applesauce, this would probably be okay, but I'd double the recipe, or at least mulitply by 1 1/2. I use one apple per student, (all sizes I'll admit) and I have enough for seconds. The kids love it. If there is a bit left over, I take it home for dessert.
