Seasonal Activities for Learning

 Laura Candler's Site has some great teaching resources for different subjects and levels and I thought I would share. I really liked the Pumpkin Seed Multiplication.  There is also November and winter activities also found on this page as well.

Other resources I found for seasonal activities:
Kathy Mitchells Online School
All Kids Network- has a bunch of fun crafts for younger learners.
Apple Science Projects for older learners
Halloween Pumpkin Templates
Pumpkin/Halloween Web page- various activities
Pumpkin Science
Teaching Unit on Pumpkins (ranges from 2nd to 7th grade)
Bats - from Kidzone
History of Halloween
Fall Lapbook
Pumpkin Lapbook
Halloween Lapbook from Homeschool Helper

*UPDATE: Here is one more lapbook I found for Fall.  I wanted to add this other FALL LAPBOOK because I thought the pumpkin life cycle page was excellent. ** this lapbook is from Dynamic2Moms a great website for resources.*

Sometimes it is fun to take a break from the more traditional studies to jump into a mini project like these. I think the bats is something we might dive into this month or next. ~

Ohhhh, fun! Thanks for posting these, I'm going to check them all out right now. You're right, breaks are good.

YES! :) Breaks for us can be as important to me as it is to my boys :)

This link isn't necessarily "seasonal," but I think it's a great resource for learning about the arts for kids:

Hope you enjoy it as much as I (and my kids) do ...
