Steps of Knowledge

On a hot summer's day in 1812, a strange-looking man walked into Mansfield, Ohio. He was John Chapman. He wore a metal cook-pot, or mush-pot, for a hat, a coffee sack for a shirt, and was barefoot. He introduced himself as Johnny Appleseed.

"Why?" "'Cause I just wander around the country plantin' apple seeds. Here, you want some?"

He reached into his sack, handed everyone some seeds, and went on his way. About a week later, Johnny ran into town, shouting, "Trouble a-brewin' out there! Head for the hills!"

Indians and settlers were fighting in a nearby town, and Johnny had come back to Mansfield to warn them of the approaching danger. Some men wanted to stay and fight, but Johnny convinced them the best thing to do was hide. When the Indians came into town and found the place deserted, they rode on. Legend has it that the grateful town gave Johnny a new mush-pot hat, and he threw the old one away.

An-Apple-Picking We Will Go (Mountain)

Johnny Appleseed planted seeds all across America, and an apple tree sprang up behind him wherever he went. Before Andrea and Angela stood a hillside with many holes, where apple seeds can be planted by pushing pegs into them. Four of the spots were fertile, and once a peg is placed, an apple will spring up from the top of the mountain. The player to make all four of their apples spring out from the top of the mountain or the player furthest along in 60 seconds won. Angela beat Andrea 3-2, awarding Angela a half pendant of life.

Massachusetts to the Midwest (Zip-line)

Johnny Appleseed brought many varieties of apples from his native Massachusetts to the Midwest when Kirk gave the signal, Jamaal and Chris each had to place an apple in their bag, grab the hanger above their heads and swoop down to the opposite platform. Once there, they had to drop the apple into their bin, grab the next hanger, zip-line back to their starting point to transfer their next apple. The player with the most apples transferred in 60 seconds won. Both players tied with 5 apples each, awarding them a half pendant apiece.

Appleseed Orchards (Tilt Swing)

Some of the orchards Johnny Appleseed planted are still bearing fruit today. The teams' job was to harvest some of the fruit. When Kirk gave the signal, each player had to run around, jump up, grab an apple and drop it in their bushel basket. While that happened, his/her partner jumped up, grabbed the next apple, and dropped it in the basket. The team to harvest the most apples in 60 seconds won. Both teams tied with 4 apples each, but the Orange Iguanas had 2 full pendants total while the Green Monkeys had 1½, sending the Orange Iguanas to Olmec's temple.
