Interactive, self-checking Boom cards & Google Slides to easily review and assess the pumpkin life cycle

This PowerPoint is an easy and fun way to teach students about how a pumpkin grows. It explains 6 pumpkin life cycle stages (seed, sprout, plant/vine, flower, green pumpkin, orange pumpkin) in a way that young children can understand and keeps their attention with real photos (some of which were taken last year while we grew our own pumpkins!) and animations.

The interactive quiz at the end of the presentation is a quick and fun way to assess whether students have comprehended the information. Students have to choose which picture in the pumpkin life cycle sequence is missing. They are given 3 choices from which to choose. If they click on the correct answer, the picture moves to the appropriate space in the sequence, a correct response sound is heard, and a happy pumpkin face is shown. If they choose an incorrect answer, an "Oh no! Try again!" pumpkin face is shown.

I have also included 6 printable pumpkin life cycle sequencing cards (real, full-color photographs) that you can use in your classroom for review / practice. They are great for centers, for your pocket chart, for around the room activities, and more.

You also receive a deck of interactive, self-checking Boom Cards as well as Google Slides that can be used for whole group instruction on an interactive whiteboard or small group instruction, distance learning, center activities, or individual practice.

Students can easily review the stages of the pumpkin life cycle and you can easily assess their understanding. Please see the preview file for a playable sample.
