Nature Study: The Pumpkin

Have you ever taken the time to look a little bit more closely at a pumpkin before carving it into a Jack-O-Lantern or eating it in a pie?

  • Best ages guideline: All ages (with help)
  • Prep: See supply list below. Pumpkin artwork can be printed for tracing or reference.

In this Morning Time session, we will be studying the pumpkin – a favorite Fall fruit.

We will do an object lesson with a real pumpkin by asking a ton of questions to help us engage all of our five senses. We will also talk about some nature lore inspired by pumpkins and read a poem about Autumn.

There will be some fun interaction time, so get ready to answer some questions! We look forward to seeing you in the chat box!
