You can use this activity to teach students about characters' feelings/emotions. Students get to look at 6 jack-o-lanterns and write a feeling for each. Then it's their turn to create one of their own by drawing a particular feeling on a pumpkin. The teacher is given 25 feelings from which students choose or pick from a pumpkin. It can be made into a game as other students guess the feelings. It would also make a lovely October bulletin board display.
