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
Teaching Unit on Pumpkins (ranges from 2nd to 7th grade)
Bats - from Kidzone
History of Halloween
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. ~
