So it is October and we are finishing up our monthly Fall Fun theme. We like to do a little Pumpkin Theme at the end of the month. The kids love opening the pumpkins and digging into the slimy orange pulp. We do this as a class project and the kids get to help dig out and count the seeds!
I always set up a Pumpkin Detective Center in our Science Area so the kids can explore the pumpkins further. We have scales and magnifiers so they can weigh them and get a closer look. I set out a variety of pumpkins from minis to large sized pumpkins. We also include some different gords for them to check out too. The kids love this center.
We are starting an APPLE theme this week. This week will be filled with lots of fun Apple Investigations, making Apple Sauce, and doing Apple Taste Tests. One of our favorite songs is Five Red Apples Hanging in a Tree. I like to send home activity pages that help extend the learning to home so I created this take home sheet. You can download The Five Red Apples Activity Page for FREE from my Teachers Pay Teachers Store!
