The Pumpkin Farm

Inspirational Background

Cool air, crunchy leaves and bright orange pumpkins is the highlight of October for my students. Field trips to the nearby farms to pick pumpkins is a fall favorite. We discussed what is found at a pumpkin farm. Here are a couple photos of our local farms and their produce.

Here is what you will need:
