I had some time to get a few posters ready that I want to use during the Fall unit, and I really felt productive! I made one with a song about leaves falling as well as one about investigating pumpkins – they were color-coded for Fall and had drawings of leaves or pumpkins. I am quite proud to teach the students the song and lead the discussion about our pumpkins 🙂 They will be on the wall and my webpage for the whole unit!
This is a great idea for the Fall unit! We already have pumpkins in our classes, so it won’t be difficult to take a closer look at one and see what the children come up with. I love involving science and discovery into the lessons and extra activities. We could also do this with other things that are distinctly Fall.
