Crisp and cool air, football and pumpkin spice! These are three of my favorite things about the fall season. Even though here in Florida our fall is delayed a bit, we still enjoy all things pumpkin beginning September 1st. Today I am rounding up my top 5 Fall FAVORITE activities for elementary students.
Apple Activities for Elementary Students
This resource is always a popular seller during the fall season. It has so much packed into it, from the apple life cycle to Johnny Appleseed reading passages and activities. Almost 40 pages of math, reading and science ready to print and use!
You can read more about these fun apple activities in this blog post.
Pumpkin Classroom Activities
I love this mini unit because its simple and exactly what you need to teach all abut how pumpkins grow! It includes graphics, a video guide, mini book and vocabulary charts and activities all centered around the life cycle of the pumpkin. Perfect (and easy!) to add into your October or November lesson plans.

Football Activities for Elementary Students
Ready, set, hike! Another milestone of fall is football season. Here in the South, Saturdays (and Sundays) between September and December are dominated by football. One of my newest favorites are themed days, and this Football Day unit is so much fun and so engaging! It is over 50 pages of ready to print math, science, social studies and reading activities all related to football. I know all the little sports lovers in your class will LOVE this one. Plan a fun themed day or sprinkle the activities all throughout football season!

Spooky Animal Units for Kids
Nothing welcomes October better than creepy and crawly bats and spiders! I have a bundle unit that includes both my Bats and Spider resources, and it is a must have for your October teaching. You will get over 100 (yes, 100!) pages of ready to use activities on both spiders and bats with the bundle including diagrams, animal research pages, coloring notes and even project choice boards. The perfect mix for seasonal fun and learning too!
Halloween Math and Literacy Worksheets
Last on my top 5 favorites for fall is my Halloween Math and Literacy unit! Halloween is such a fun season to celebrate in elementary school. The kids love it so much! This resource is perfect to use all October long to add in some Halloween fun, while still teaching the standards. Use these ready to go worksheets as morning work, early finisher activities, independent practice and more! This unit is designed for 2nd-4th graders.
This post has me so excited! I hope you found something you think will fit perfectly in your classroom for the fall this year!
