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 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.
