Apples hold special meaning for educators and have a history unlike any other fruit or vegetable. For teachers especially, apples represent something very special, for since the beginning of time, an apple on teacher's desk was a gift of (sometimes anonymous) adoration from a student.

September 26 is the birthday of the legendary John Chapman (otherwise known as Johnny Appleseed), March 11 is the anniversary of his death, and October is National Apple Month - three opportunities for teachers to take their favorite fruit friend and integrate him into every area of the curriculum... literally.

Read on and discover where you can find apple info all over the internet. Enjoy!
