Squash Pumpkin Squash: A big book about the life cycle of the pumpkin
This informational text and related literacy materials in large format (11"x17" prints from most commercial copy machines, or can be scaled to print smaller) can be used as a foundation for the development of a thematic unit about plant life cycles. This text is easy to print and use for instruction in a variety of ways, including student adaptation of the text by adding labels, colors, and expanding the glossary. Please see provided preview.
I develop these materials to use collaboratively in the classroom, re-reading multiple times with students in different ways, including dividing pages among students, and to be used together with our work in the school garden.
This resource integrates literacy and science and is even more meaningful when paired with related experiences in a school garden.
