  2. 2. © Creaons by LAckert Name: _____________________________________________________ December 1st: Eat a Red Apple Day An old saying, still repeated today, tells us that An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Why do you think people say that? Do you think it’s true? What is good about apples? Are there any reasons that you shouldn't eat apples? Apple Chips: You will need a sharp knife, apple corer, string or ribbon, and apples. Ask an adult to core the apples (cut out the center) and slice the apples into ¼ inch slices (slice through the middle of the apple to make rings). Put the rings onto the string. Don't pack the rings together, but leave breathing room between the rings. That way they will dry out evenly. Hang the string of apples somewhere cool and dry. When the apples are wrinkled and dried (it usually takes 2-3 weeks), you can eat them! Store the ones you wont eat right away in a covered container, out of direct sunlight.
  3. 3. © Creaons by LAckert Name: _____________________________________________________ December 2nd: Fritters Day Your name is Fran. You are the owner of Fran's Fritter Critters. You have mastered the art of turning ordinary apple fritters into extraordinary critters! Describe what you like best about your talent. Draw one of your fritter creations on the back!
  4. 4. © Creaons by LAckert Name: _____________________________________________________ December 3rd: International Day of Disabled Persons Some of the greatest success stories you will ever hear are about people who overcame difficulties to reach their goals. Many people with disabilities learn to overcome challenges others would never even attempt. Are you, or is someone you know, disabled? How can a disability make life more difficult? Is there any way that a disability can make life better? Write about a disabled person specifically, or about disability in general.
  5. 5. © Creaons by LAckert Name: _____________________________________________________ December 4th: Mary Celeste was found On December 4th, 1872, a British ship came across another ship, the Mary Celeste, which was drifting in the Atlantic Ocean. The Mary Celeste was sailing from New York to Genoa (Italy). The Captain, his wife, their daughter, and a crew of eight were all missing from the ship. They were never found, and nobody knows why they left the ship. The ship still had food, water, and all its cargo. What do you think happened?
  6. 6. © Creaons by LAckert Name: _____________________________________________________ December 5th: “Hi, Neighbor” Month Do you live in a friendly neighborhood, or do people mostly keep to themselves? How often do you greet your neighbors? How many of your neighbors do you know by name? In honor of Hi, Neighbor month, try to meet at least one neighbor that you don't know. You could go over to someone's house with your parents, or you could just say Hi, neighbor and introduce yourself when you see them. Be sure to tell your parents about your plan - maybe they would like to join you! Write about your experience here:
  7. 7. © Creaons by LAckert Name: _____________________________________________________ December 6th: St. Nicholas's Feast Day The story of St. Nicholas probably began in Turkey in the 4 century. There are many different stories about him, and nobody knows which stories are true (maybe he gave money to three girls so that they could get married maybe he saved children maybe.). In all of the stories, he was a generous man. St. Nicholas is still known today in different countries by different names: in England he is called Father Christmas, in France he is Pere Noël, in Germany he is Weinachtsman, and he is called Sinterklass in Holland. In the 1600s, Sinterklass emigrated (with Dutch colonists) to America, where he became Santa Claus. What do you know about St. Nicholas? Write a report about what you know.
