Trading Johnny


Here are 3 ART ideas specifically for a Johnny Appleseed lesson:

1. For younger children you can print or cut out a plain image of an apple the size of the trading card and then have your student draw in with a black marker the exact amount of seeds that match their age. Glue the apple onto the back of the card and have the student write “I am 6 (or whatever age) years old”. This is a great keepsake!

2. Discuss the different colors and varieties of apples after you taste a few. Use their thumbprint to stamp their favorite type of apples. Add stems and leaves with markers. For an added touch, draw in a basket to put their thumbprint apples in!

3. For older students, have them use the back of the card to draw the parts of an apple (stem, core, seeds, flesh, skin, leaves).
