During the month of October, our students focus on reading biographies. Our team has our students choose a biography to read, then the students fill in this report form I created. Next, students purchase a pumpkin and decorate it to look like the person they have researched. The decorating is done at home. They use paint, yarn, baseball caps, etc. to decorate. We have learned not to let the students cut or carve the pumpkin in any way. Cutting the pumpkin will begin the molding process. The students bring their pumpkins to class, and they present their pumpkins and reports to the class. Then, we line up the pumpkins up in front of a display of an old fence with an owl and a moon in the background. The students always look forward to the boo-ographies.
