We began by talking about pumpkins and discussing their traits and how there are many different looking pumpkins. We then looked at some pictures that showed a wide variety of pumpkins (shape, size, color...) The students then created their own pumpkin patches. They first drew and colored their pumpkins on a white sheet of paper, then cut them out and pasted them onto the green sheet of construction paper. They then decorated the background. This is a great lesson for teaching space, as the pumpkins can be layered to show depth.
