This book is great to use around the holidays to learn more about pumpkins. Included are language arts, science, and math activities. Students read poem about pumpkins, learn facts about them, as well as how to cook the seeds. We discuss pumpkin life cycles and I have my students illustrate the steps of the cycle. At the end, I bring in a pumpkin and have my students guess the number of seeds inside. We then group and count them to see the actual number inside. My students love it!
