The Pumpkin Circle is a beautifully written and photographed story. Children see what happens when a pumpkin grows from a teeny-tiny seed into an orange globe. Children visit a pumpkin patch, see blooming flowers and cool insects. When the pumpkin decomposes students gain an understanding of the pumpkin circle and how that applies to life. This item can also be used with any fiction or nonfiction pumpkin read aloud.
This student writing can be combined with plant study. Students are able to integrate science knowledge with the questions posed in this narrative writing.
