Your students will love this fun hands-on activity pack! Pumpkins come in all different shapes, colors, and sizes just perfect for students observation and exploration. In this unit, students will predict, explore, and estimate all about their chosen pumpkin(s).

By combining a variety of reading, math skills, and scientific observation skills students will learn all about pumpkins. These activities are great for fall centers!

Students will learn all about pumpkins including:

✔Life cycle of a Pumpkin

✔Parts of a Pumpkin

✔Fruit or Vegetable?

✔Homemade Pumpkin Treats

This unit includes many interactive activities including:

✔Meet Alexander - a young botanist

✔Summarize How to Grow a Gigantic Pumpkin

✔Math Task Cards

✔Fruit & Veggie Pocket Sort

✔All About Pumpkins---Fact and Opinion

✔Mystery Flaps

✔Vocabulary Posters

✔Spotlight on Vocabulary

✔Vocabulary Flip Flaps

✔PLUS 6 page Flip Booklet

There are 3 main activities:


Introduce the vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to define the words in their flip flaps. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too.


Next, have students read the passages and complete the different activities. You could have students work with a partner or in small groups. Putting one article and a related activity at each center works well with intermediate students.


There are lots of activities included in this pack including a 6-page flip book. Have students complete the flip booklet and build it page by page. I usually have them do one page at each center or station. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the booklet. Lastly, cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flip up books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12x18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover.
