In my classroom, we are finally starting to get ready for Halloween! Hawaii doesn’t have traditional seasons, so I don’t do too much about fall. We don’t have any apple orchards so it doesn’t make sense to do apple week. We don’t have trees with leaves that turn colors and drift to the ground, so we don’t do too many activities around leaves and trees. But we do have a local pumpkin patch and a long tradition of Halloween!
To gear up, I busy prepping my Pumpkin Life Cycles and Experiments unit. I know the kiddos are going to enjoy exploring the scientific method while counting seeds, experimenting with pumpkins, and even tasting the seeds!
Another way I like to decorate is by using fun containers and manipulatives in math.
