Introduction

We are going to be doing a lesson on apples. The lesson will begin with the teacher orally reading a story about apples (most likely Johnny Appleseed). Then we will discuss the story as a whole class. Students will then do art of the place, people, and things from the story. Then the students will identify the colors and shapes within their pictures.

Here is a list of websites that provide information about apples and creating apple lesson plans. They are full of color and contain many different ideas and activities for children.

COLORS & SHAPES
    •Washington Apples Just for Kids
I will be using the coloring book section of this website. This will emphasize that apples can be different colors.
    •Virgina Apples Kids Corner
I will use the apple varieties section. This demonstrates the different colors and types of apples.
    •Alphabet Soup - Apple Activities
I will be using the Apple Art from this website. Completing the art will reemphasize the colors and shape of apples.
UNDERSTANDING A STORY
    •Additional Apples Sources
I will be using Section 8 of this website. It discusses Johnny Appleseed and lesson plans you can do with the book.
    •DLTK Apple Activities for Kids
I will be using "About Johnny Appleseed" and the "Johnny Appleseed" song.
