Product Description
There are many great non-fiction books that explain the life cycle of pumpkins. One of my favorites is From Seed to Pumpkin, by Wendy Pfeffer. This is a Literature Links Unit to accompany that book, though it can j easily be used with any book about pumpkin life cycles (fiction or non-fiction).

When I teach our K-3rd children about scientific concepts, I find that showing photographs of real objects helps them to better understand the ideas. I developed these resources to show the stages of the life cycle of a pumpkin.

I’ve included 3 sizes of photo cards:
*I use the big cards (full page size) when I introduce the life cycle.
First, I display the pages on my interactive white board. (To do this, you just need to open the pdf and scroll through it when your computer is hooked up to your white board.) Then, I print, laminate and bind the pages into a book for the students to read throughout our pumpkin unit.

*I use the medium-sized set (half pages when I work with a small reading group. I have the students read them together and put them in order on a pocket cart.

*I use the smallest set in a center for independent practice. The students read the cards and put them in order. I’ve included a black and white version that your students can color and use to practice reading.

I’ve also included a set of word and text cards that I use as a word bank for student reference, and a pumpkin life cycle chart using photographs.

I hope your students get as much out of these activities as much as mine have!

Please note: the book From Seed to Pumpkin is not included in this unit. If you don't already own a copy of your own, you can borrow one from your library.
