### Description

Pumpkin / Halloween math and science activities are perfect for fall! Kids will explore pumpkins in hands-on investigating and measuring activities, learn about the pumpkin life cycle, practice sequencing with both pictures and writing activities, play a pumpkin math dice game, label the parts of a pumpkin, and even hold a pumpkin election (with pumpkin ballots!) with a graphing activities to see which jack-o-lantern wins! Fun and exciting activities that are unique and get kids thinking.

1) Pumpkins Investigation Activity: with small pumpkins and in groups of 3-4, students will first make predictions about their pumpkins. Then, using different science tools (scale, measure tape, rule), students can take and record actual measurements.

2) Let’s Carve a Pumpkin! Informative Writing Activity. Kids fill in the steps of carving a pumpkin following the cues “First, Second, Next,” etc.

3) Parts of a Pumpkin: cut out the labels of the parts of the pumpkin and paste them onto the correct parts (fabulous, realistic illustrations!).

4) Pumpkin Addition: students can play by themselves, against a partner, or in a group. They roll the die, add 1 to the number, and color in the appropriate pumpkin- trying to color in all of the pumpkins.

5) Life Cycle of a Pumpkin Sequencing Cards: each student gets one copy of the sequence cards. They then color them, cut them out, and paste them onto a long strip of paper (or sentence strip).

6/7) Pumpkin Ballots and Graphs: Halloween falls near Election Day, which means it’s a great time to teach about elections and voting. Hold your own class election! Have each student secretly cast their vote for their favorite pumpkin design.

After the voting is complete, count the total votes and use the graph worksheet to create a class bar graph to determine who won the election.

What sets apart this Halloween pumpkin math packet from the rest? The fantastic, artistically drawn illustrations (instead of stock clip art!) and the innovative, hands-on activities that kids love!
