This mini unit integrates reading, writing, math and science to learn about pumpkins and also includes some other fun ideas. Seed, Sprout, Pumpkin, Pie (Picture the Seasons) Paperback – July 28, 2009 by Jill Esbaum (Author) is a great book to use for pumpkin facts. Another idea might be to have small groups read various leveled books about Pumpkins and come up with their own Pumpkins can have and are ideas or you can read the story to the class and have them jot down their ideas as you read or after a 3 minute reading, then pause and have children write their facts. Also, around October, Scholastic News always has a magazine that deals with pumpkins. So, however you do this mini unit, your class will definitely have fun!
