The flavor of the season is pumpkin, so why not inject a Pumpkin Poetry unit into your lesson plans and then enjoy some pumpkin pie ice cream!

Pumpkin Poetry is a colorful 28 page Language Arts unit which students can use to create several forms of poetry: Acrostic, Diamante, Haiku, Limerick, Monorhyme, Cinquain, Minute, Tanka and Shape.

(Preview the Pumpkin Poetry unit here)

To download the unit, go to: Available Downloads (under the Holiday and Seasonal Related category).

When you are ready to make some delicious pumpkin pie ice cream, just follow the recipe below:

 

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 4 cups half and half
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 vanilla beans
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 7.5 oz canned pumpkin
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cloves

Directions

Combine all dairy into a saucepan along with the sugar. Split and scrape the vanilla beans into the dairy and sugar mixture. Bring to 170 degrees F. to dissolve sugar then let cool at room temperature. Chill in the refrigerator overnight. While dairy is heating, grate nutmeg into pumpkin and add the other spices. Mix in a bowl to combine and chill overnight in the refrigerator. The next day, take pumpkin and dairy mixture out. Filter dairy mixture to remove large vanilla bean pieces. Add some of the dairy mixture to the pumpkin and mix well to loosen it up. Then mix both the dairy and pumpkin together. Freeze in your ice cream freezer according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Let the ice cream harden for at least two hours unless serving all immediately.

For those who produce creation videos on youtube and are looking for that break, here's your chance: Announcing the Epic Evolution Pwnage contest. Produce a video two minutes in length or less explaining your favourite evidence against evolution or for creation, and you could win a Captain Antagonator costume, all three volumes of Ian's CrEvo Rants on DVD, and $50 CDN prize (payable only via paypal). To enter, post your video as a video response to the announcement video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ALzj-ysB8g

I totally forgot to mention this here: Carey Jane Clark, a homeschool mom, has a blog and she wanted to start a weekly column on creation. This was week 1, I was the guest writer. This week we dealt with the age of the earth according to the Bible:

We are seeking reviewers of the first book of the series. If you are wanting to just add another book to your shelf, please do not respond; but if you are serious, and especially if you have children, then we want to give you a free bookto review.

 

If you are interested, please email our Social Media Manager, sgagne@creationtoday.org, with you name, shipping address, phone number, email, and ages of children in your home.
