Pumpkins are always take center stage in fall and on Halloween, and there are so many different ways a pumpkin can be used. How could a pumpkin possibly choose what to be? Well, this product has students do just that! It starts with a cartoon story about a pumpkin and a spider talking, and the pumpkin realizes he doesn't know what he wants to be "when he grows up". Students will write an essay explaining and persuading the pumpkin to be whatever that student decides he should be. An assignment sheet is provided that can be printed for individual student use. A rubric is also provided and can be printed to assist with grading if desired. This is a fun and engaging activity that gets even the most reluctant writers excited and involved. Enjoy!
You can project the cartoon story onto a screen/wall by zooming out in Adobe. You can switch pages like in powerpoint by pushing page down on your keyboard.
