Past posts in the Apple Education Community are a super resource for timely classroom ideas. Use the search feature to find topics.

From last year’s resources and tips I was able to decorated a primary source pumpkin. (Photo from Carol Highsmith Collection Library of Congress - animation from Keynote!)

Even in high school, we get into pumpkin carving, candy distribution & Halloween photo contests. Pumpkin spice jumps into our lattes, October’s pumpkins don the desks of offices or workspaces AND it is always fun to also make digital pumpkins.

Here are some “how to” posts to get you and your students into the spirit.
