Literature Unit Study for How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World (31 Days of Literature Unit Ideas and Read Aloud Wednesday Link Up)

This post is part of the 31 Days of Literature Unit Ideas series. You can find all of the books in the series here. And if you'd like to use this literature unit, you can find a FREE printable guide below.

The book I'm featuring today is a favorite when learning about cultures and geography. How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World by Marjorie Priceman takes readers on a world tour...all to find the ingredients for the perfect apple pie. There are lots of ways to extend the geography learning with this story, and you can wrap it all up with some apple pie recipes.

About the book...

Readers are taken on a journey around the continents to collect the ingredients needed to make the best apple pie. As they travel, they find ingredients that come from all over the world. At the end of the story, we have all we need to make an apple pie.

Suggested schedule...

The story covers six specific places as well as the overall concept of world geography and fun apple topics and ingredients. I would break down the unit into eight days, doing activities for one category each day. I like to read through the book multiple times during a unit study as well as reading other books related to the topics I'm covering. Finish up this unit with an apple-themed treat-apple pie!
