The Life Cycle of a Pumpkin - Paper Bag Book with Informational Text:
It's a fun October project for your pumpkin unit, a science activity and a book made with brown lunch bags all in one! This Lunch Bag Lesson booklet is a fun way to integrate science and life cycles into your reading activities in the fall or even during a plant unit. All you need for this adorable project is a few brown lunch bags, the printables in this file, staples, crayons and glue.
The design of this book allows it to be interactive! There are frames on flaps to lift to reveal a fact below and pouches with pull-out inserts with interesting pumpkin facts your students can read! The main pages of the booklet describe the stages in the life cycle of a pumpkin from seed to harvest.
All pages, and the booklet cover and inserts, are created in black and white so your students can color the graphics, backgrounds and frames.
This item is best suited for second grade and third grade students. First grade learners will need help with reading the text and assembling the booklet.
