Fall and Harvest Thematic Units













Signs of fall are officially in clear view and it is time
to bring the season into the classroom!


A great way to start is by throwing some dried corn and wheat into the sensory table. (If you don't have a farm, feed, or garden store nearby, both can be purchased at most large grocery stores.)




Check out our 84 page Fall Thematic Unit 
and 
74 page Harvest Thematic Unit:
Both are filled with great ideas for immediate use.
