The Pumpkin Patch - A Venture in Agritourism

After reading an article about how agritourism is helping boost the financial stability of local farms, middle schoolers answer comprehension questions. This is a case-study of Canadian pumpkin producers. It could be useful as a introduction to research on other forms of agribusiness in a science class. Teach this in the autumn and follow it up with a trip to the nearest pumpkin patch!

As a middle school teacher and coach, I have very little spare time. This year, I was asked to teach 2 subjects (one of which I have never taught). Lesson Planet has helped me become more prepared without having to spend hours on the internet searching for ideas. Almost everything I need can now be found with one click of the mouse!
