Several school districts in Illinois are incorporating pumpkins into lesson plans. For example, fourth-grade students at an Indian Prairie District elementary school were recently asked to calculate the circumferences of pumpkins and estimate how many seeds each one had. Activities involving pumpkins and other fall produce can help build social-emotional and observational skills, teachers say.
