Frosted windowpanes and the crunching of leaves under our feet mean Fall is back! Even though Fall can be a great time for exploring nature because of the cooler temperatures and changing seasons. Fall also means we will be spending more days indoors than our kids would probably like. It’s the perfect time to look for fun, hands-on activities to keep them busy and let them learn at the same time. STEM activities are great for this. Kids can have a great time and learn something in the process. There are a lot of STEM activities out there for our kids, but I like to incorporate themed activities into our lesson plans throughout the year.

Right now, I’m thinking Fall and pumpkins. For those pumpkin and fall-themed lesson plans, here are some great pumpkin STEM activities.
