We are preparing for a trip to the pumpkin patch, and we will be bringing home the biggest pumpkin we can find (or that we can carry!) to carve together. This is a great hands on activity that we can use for so many areas of learning.
Here are some of the things we learn with our giant pumpkin:
- Art – Drawing, designing a face, cutting and gluing, various art techniques
- Math – counting seeds, grouping into tens and hundreds, graphing
- Literacy – Writing stories, predictions, opinions; reading each other’s writing, vocabulary
- Science – The pumpkin life cycle, decomposition, cooking the seeds, pumpkin pie
I created a clip art set that will be perfect for my sequencing lessons in class.
If you’d like to use the images too, they are FREE!
Just click the image or click HERE to download them.
I’d love to see what you do with them!
