The Pumpkin Olympics are a series of 5 center activities focusing on descriptive writing, math, and science. Students break up into smaller groups to rotate through these stations. This would be a great time to use adult volunteers in your classroom! They could also be used as a fun Halloween activitiy without focusing on all the gore that comes with this holiday.
We have always used The Pumpkin Olympics as a grade-level activity where students rotate through the different classrooms in mixed-class groups before our Halloween party.
You will need some additional materials for these stations such as gourds and pumpkin seeds. Please look through the materials list in the preview before purchasing.
This download will provide you with directions and a packet students can use for accountability during the center activities. They can be adapted for younger or older students. Enjoy!
