Have you ever wondered why we give apples to teachers? Supposedly in the 1700s, poor families in Denmark and Sweden gave teachers baskets of apples to pay for their children’s schooling. It could also be that in the United States frontier families were often responsible for housing and feeding teachers and possibly children would bring an apple for their teacher. 

Bing Crosby, in his hit An Apple for a Teacher,  sang about all the benefits of gifting an apple. For example, he sings, “an apple for the teacher will always do the trick when you don’t know your lesson in arithmetic.”

No matter the origins it is still a kind way to show your teacher appreciation for their hard work!
