the man who supplied much of the United States
with apple trees.
Many people believe he was a fictional character
but he was real....born September 26, 1774.
His real name was John Chapman
I believe you can guess how he got the name
To celebrate this man and the fruit he loved so dearly
the kindergarten had apple immersion all week
which ended with a whirlwind tour of an apple orchard
17 out of 17 kindergarteners say the BEST part of the trip was riding the school bus
it was many of the kiddos first time on a bus......and they LOVED it
off we went on a winding, hilly tour of the orchard
a bucket of chilled apples awaited
After the tour there was plenty of fun to be had
the importance of bees and pollenation
and how healthy apples are.....LOADED with vitamin C and fiber
for those of you who need extra fiber...you know who you are....eat apples !!
Really...the extra bubbly and cute apple lady said so...wish I had a pic of her....she was adorable.
