Today as we continue our fall science unit we read the book Pumpkin Pumpkin by Jeanne Titherington.  Pumpkin Pumpkin is a book that follows a boy that found some pumpkin seeds that planted them and watched the pumpkin grow.  Students learned different pumpkin science vocabulary and the life cycle of a pumpkin.  Finally students retold the sequence of the story by putting in order the life of a pumpkin seed in a A-Z Teacher Stuff craft.

We read the book Pumpkin, Pumpkin and discussed how the pumpkin didn’t start out as a pumpkin but as a seed.  We retold the story by making a model of the life cycle of the pumpkin.

We read Waiting for Wings and discussed the how the butterfly changed throughout the book.  We then completed cut and glue sequence pages on the life cycle of a butterfly.

Then to add art and math into the lesson we painted butterflies only on one side and folded the paper over, to create a mirror image.  This demonstrated the concept of symmetry.

We read Pumpkin Pumpkin and talked about the life cycle of a pumpkin and remembered what we read in the story.  The students then made a model of the life cycle.
