This is a unit which contains science, math and English Language Arts skills studying actual pumpkins in the fall instead of the typical Halloween icons of ghosts, witches and Jack o'Lanterns for your 3rd through 5th grade students. Students will bring in pumpkins to study, observe, write about, and measure. There is a reading and writing component while learning about The Circleville Pumpkin show, comparing a brochure to a news article. The final evaluation is a written component. Within the unit are rubrics for your evaluation and evaluations by the students. There is a cooperative section with job cards. Included is a family letter to let the families know when to bring the pumpkin.
