Pumpkin learning features in 6 fun science, technology, engineering, art & math activities! Your students will be engaged in hands on learning as they graph, observe, draw, label, read about, measure, sequence and create with pumpkins! Most of these activities are ready to print and go, others require minimal preparation. This resource includes:
- 9 page reproducible non-fiction reader about the pumpkin life cycle
-A pocket chart version of the booklet, with pictures to sequence and match to the sentences,
- Pumpkin observation and labeling activity,
- Graph: predict whether a pumpkin will sink or float
- Parts of a pumpkin and parts of a pumpkin plant posters
- Measurement center (non-standard units)
- "Gourd-geous" creations with follow up writing activities.

To see everything that is included in this resource, please see the preview.

****You will need to provide at least one pumpkin for your class to observe and work with. Additionally, in order to make the "gourd-geous" creations you will need a class supply of decorative pumpkins and natural items such as leaves and acorns. The measurement center can be used as is (pumpkin measuring strips are included), or you can provide pumpkin candies to add some excitement!****
