What better time is there for a pumpkin unit than October?! And resources are plentiful right now in the blogosphere.
I’ll be linking to Montessori-inspired pumpkin resources here and adding a link to my Pumpkin Unit Study Pinterest board filled with LOTS AND LOTS of pumpkin resources of all types and for all levels. I’ll be adding to this post and my Pinterest board throughout October.

More Ideas for a Pumpkin Unit Study on Pinterest
On Pinterest, I have MANY, MANY MORE resources for a pumpkin unit study for a number of age levels. The resources aren’t all Montessori resources, but there are many fantastic ideas to choose from to fit into a pumpkin unit.
