Kindergarteners in the North Hills school district celebrated Johnny Appleseed day Friday.
North Hills Patch was invited to visit the West View Elementary kindergarten students in Jessica Friedrich's and Jennifer Rennebeck's classes, where they created apple-related artwork, learned apple-themed vocabulary, made apple tarts and donned handmade Johnny Appleseed hats.
In real life, according to Wikipedia, Johnny Appleseed was Jonathan Chapman, an American pioneeer nurseryman who introduced apple trees to large parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois.
He became an American legend while still alive, largely because of his kind and generous ways, his great leadership in conservation, and the symbolic importance he attributed to apples, Wikipedia states.
