Pumpkin Project and a Freebie

A pumpkin project is such a fun way to foster the home-school connection for your students! Our first grade team has done a pumpkin project for several years. This year we are taking a walking field trip to the pumpkin patch to learn about pumpkins and to select out pumpkins!  So exciting:)
 
 
This project is as simple as 1-2-3!
 
1- Send home the parent letter explaining the project.
 
 
2- Assign the planning page where students can work with their families to create a supply list and a diagram to help assist with the creation of their character.
 
 
3. Students complete their pumpkin project sheet at home.  They will need to identify the main character, setting and details from the story.  There are different versions available depending on your grade level or student ability levels.
 

 
The best part is when students bring in their completed pumpkin projects to share with the class! Here are a few from last year!

I hope you join in the fun this year.  I have added this unit to TpT as a FREEBIE!
