My old pumpkins unit has received a complete makeover! Now it's jam-packed full of real photographs, non-fiction texts, graphic organizers, science activities, and writing projects to see you through a full week of pumpkin fun. Here's what's included:
1.) Life Cycle of A Pumpkin posters & vocabulary cards (featuring real-life photographs)
2.) Non-fiction text for a class book/mentor text as well as a simplified accompanying student reader (student reader provided in both color & black and white)
3.) Pumpkin Investigation Journal: Use this journal for a day of pumpkin investigations! Classic activities include writing about a pumpkin, measuring a pumpkin, observing whether it sinks or floats, describing the inside, and counting the seeds.
4.) Pumpkin Seed Science: This experiment examines the question, "Does the size of a pumpkin affect the number of seeds?" Step-by-step direction for the experiment are included as well as a 6-page science journal where students will record their hypothesis, observations, data, and conclusion.
5.) Pumpkin Graphic Organizers: KWL, fact graphic organizer, Pumpkins Can/Have/Are charts, and cut & paste diagrams for both the inside and outside of the pumpkin
6.) All About Pumpkins Research Report: Students will write about what they have learned about pumpkins and create an All About Pumpkins report. Writing papers, report cover (in both color & black and white), fill-in-the-blank diagrams, table of contents, and glossary pages are included. This could be used throughout the unit or as a culminating activity!
7.) How To Carve A Pumpkin literacy activities: Sequencing cards, a matching emergent reader, cut & paste worksheet, writing graphic organizers, writing papers, and two versions of an adorable pumpkin shape book (1 low-prep option, 1 craft option) are included.
