We put apples slices into 4 different jars. One jar had just air, the next had water, the next had oil, and the last one had vinegar. We observed them all day to see what would happen to the apples and we put our results in our journals.

Themed Learning {Halloween}

A few years ago I shared about doing a themed learning unit, Winter. I remember how much fun that was for the kids, so I decided to bring back themed learning units. Yay!

Of course with Halloween being only 1 day away, what better theme to start with…

We carve pumpkins every year. It has been a tradition of ours for about 12 years now.

#3 – Candy corn, corn on the cobs

We first tried our hand at this a few years ago, and it was a lot of fun so we decided to try it again. You can find really cool ones on Pinterest.

Food we ate:

Pumpkin shaped sandwiches – We made peanut butter and jelly, but you could do any kind of sandwich. You just need a cookie cutter. I paired the sandwiches with oranges, Jello (orange), Carrots with ranch, goldfish, Halloween Oreo, and a homemade pumpkin looking pretzel.

Mummy hot dogs – So cute, fun, and easy to make! You only need hot dogs and crescent rolls to make these mummy hot dogs. Recipe can be found HERE.
