One of my favorite fall activities... one that I have done for YEARS!!!
Depending on the class... some years I invite the kids to bring in a pumpkin... sometimes I just pick up 4 or 5 and have them work together in teams to measure, weigh, compare, count and decorate their orange sphere. When time permits... I carve their pumpkins and place glow sticks inside for a fun effect and decoration for our school wide Halloween parade. It always amazes me how many kids have NEVER carved a pumpkin.
