Martic Students Use Harvest Activities to Teach Lessons

Third and fourth grade teachers at Martic Elementary combined some fun harvest activities in their lesson plans. The students rotated through five harvest lessons – one in each classroom. For example, in Ms. Urban’s classroom, students used candy corn as a measuring device. The students were instructed to estimate how many pieces of candy corn would be needed to measure items such as their desk, ruler, and chair. They used a bag of candy corn to get the actual numbers. In Mrs. Bohannon’s classroom, the students made pumpkin glyphs. The students had to follow directions to construct their pumpkins. For example, the shape of the pumpkin was determined by their gender, the eye shape by their favorite subject, the nose shape by the number of siblings and the mouth style was determined by whether their first name ended in a consonant or a vowel.
