My students are in complete awe of pumpkins and their life cycle and it’s all thanks to our “Magic Pumpkin Patch” bulletin board. Each day when the kids enter the room, they experience a new stage in their pumpkin seeds’ development. They love to predict what will pop up when they come to school the next day.
Day 1: We “planted” our pumpkin seeds (taped them to our dirt–scrunched up brown paper). Of course we needed our scarecrows to protect the seeds so they would all flourish. We mimicked our “Magic Pumpkin Patch” with these pumpkin life cycle books. Get A Pumpkin Seed Story here!
Big and fat.
Turned into a jack-o-lantern,
Just like that!”
