Use pumpkins to teach geography...how cool! This would be so fun for Christopher Columbus activities...
Pumpkin Globes, Pumpkin Geography, Idea, Halloween Pumpkin, World Maps, Teaching Geography, Social Studies, Social Study, Kid
Love this idea!! Pumpkin Geography: This resource uses pumpkins as globes and lets the students paint the world on the pumpkin. I think this would be a cool activity to do because the kids can work on their knowledge of the world and will be able to expand their world maps.
great idea for halloween! Pumpkin geography!
Pumpkin globes! Perfect fall social studies lesson!
This would be really cool to do with older kids around Halloween time. Teaching geography? Make Pumpkin Globes! - Tape down the continents and paint the pumpkin blue. The next day, remove the continents and color them in green with marker. Put two rubber bands around the pumpkin to represent the equator and voila, Pumpkin Globe!

Integrate social studies and art by creating a state stamp! I really love this activity because it allows for a lot of creative freedom. After educating the children about their own state (or even other states in the U.S) they can pick their favorite elements and aspects of their state, and design their own state stamp. This art project will be able to reinforce the learning of the material learned in the social studies lesson, while still being fun and allowing the children to be creative!
4th Grade Art with Mrs. Brown -- design a state stamp (aligns with social studies common core)
social studies art-share with carrie for 5th grade state projects
This is a creative activity that integrates social studies and art by creating a state stamp. Students research a state's bird, flower, tree, etc. and then create a postage stamp using what they have learned.
