PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I LOVE fall! One of my favorite units I do throughout the month of October is centered around pumpkins! This is just one piece of my unit (see link for bundle pack below), but it covers so much and the kids really love it!

This 35 page product includes:

-6 vocabulary posters to use for the activities: germinate, ripe, harvest, gravity, weight, density

-"Life Cycle of a Pumpkin" center activity complete with all colored poster pieces

-"Comparing Life Cycles" reading activity that includes a table and double bubble map for students to fill in and 5 reading passages about the life cycles of other popular fruits

-"Let's Grow a Pumpkin!" activity that has students observe, measure and record the germination of real pumpkin seeds over time

-"Sink or Float?" activity that has students explore density using pumpkins

Materials needed for this unit besides what is included:

-individual pumpkins, enough for groups, or 1 class pumpkin
-a bucket big enough to fit a real pumpkin in (stopping up a large sink works as well)
-sandwich-sized baggies for each student
-permanent marker
-paper towels
-aluminum foil
small cups or containers for water
-computers and/or books about pumpkins (optional)

This is one piece of my PUMPKIN BUNDLE PACK!! Pumpkin Bundle Pack
