Product Description
Perfect addition to your pumpkin life cycle unit!

Includes:
• a PowerPoint presentation that explains the pumpkin life cycle using simple terms, animations, & real, full-color photographs which help students relate the information to the real world
• a fun, interactive quiz that tests students' comprehension
printable pumpkin life cycle sequencing cards that can be used in centers, in pocket charts, or for around the room activities
• New! Interactive, self-checking Boom cards 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 that can be used for whole group instruction on an interactive whiteboard or small group instruction, center activities, individual practice on an iPad, laptop, desktop, tablet, or smartphone. 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.

What are Boom Cards?

Boom Cards are interactive, self-checking digital task cards that require NO PREP (no printing, cutting, or laminating required)! They offer an easy way for teachers to assess important skills and a fun way for students to practice these skills.

Boom Cards play on modern browsers (released in the last three years) on interactive whiteboards, computers and tablets. Boom Cards apps are also available. Not sure your browser is modern enough? Try a free Boom Cards deck first. 

When you redeem your purchase, Boom Learning opens an account for you if you do not already have one. For TpT customers new to Boom Cards, Boom Learning will give you, for one year, a free account that lets you track student progress for up to 80 students. At the end of that year, you may renew or choose not to renew. If you do not renew, you will be able to continue using Boom Cards with the Fast Play feature. Fast Play does not track individual progress.
