Unit Studies | Life Cycle of a Pumpkin

pumpkin lessons activities

Fall, especially around Halloween, is a great time to study pumpkins because you can do so many hands on activities to go with it — head out to the pumpkin patch, roast pumpkin seeds, make pumpkin cookies or pumpkin cake pops and so much more. Not to mention, there are so many fantastic kids books out there about pumpkins:

From Pumpkin to Seed Book (AFFILIATE) Seed. Sprout. Pumpkin Pie (AFFILIATE) Life Cycles Pumpkins (AFFILIATE)

It's a Fruit. It's a Vegetable. It's a Pumpkin (AFFILIATE) Pumpkin Harvest (AFFILIATE Pick a Perfect Pumpkin (AFFILIATE)

And, don’t be afraid to carry this study unit into November for Thanksgiving so that you can take advantage of all the pumpkin-filled goodness for that holiday, too!



Here are some pumpkin resources that will allow you to create your own pumpkin unit study for homeschool, plus some other pumpkin-related activities and ideas for fall.
