how to make an apple pie...

and see the world!
one of our very favorite Five in a Row books over the years has been How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World. we read it every september when you can smell fall in the air and the apples are ready to pick. this year was extra special since we were picking our own apples. it was so much fun to revisit this unit study that takes you on a wild cross-continental chase looking for all the ingredients for your pie!
some of the resources we are using for our unit study include The Picture Atlas of the World, From Sea to Shining Sea: Vermont, and An Apple a Day by melvin berger. we are learning about johnny appleseed with Folks Call Me Appleseed John by andrew glass and John Chapman: The Man Who Was Johnny Appleseed by carol greene.

of course we made an apple pie!

B made flags for all the countries that were visited in the story and we mapped the journey with red string.

this is a memory game putting the countries and ingredients in order.

we went to the market for vanilla ice cream to top our apple pie...and thankfully it was open! ;o)

everyday gift: apple pie
