PUMPKIN… PUMPKIN!!

30 Oct

Pumpkins are a very common Autumny fruit. Besides, they are one of the main Halloween symbols!

There are many activities that could be done related to Pumpkins and that would keep children motived and eager to learn.

Next, there is a collection of resources that I have gathered together to work on Pumpkins with the little ones in Primary level:

To start with, I have selected a book of Splat the Cat, who I adore! (click on the image to hear the read aloud).

Once the pumpkins have been intoduced through the story, there are many different activities to learn some facts about them. A possible one is to learn its Lifr Cycle and its parts:

I have made a video tutorial for a a song about a pumpkin named “I’m a little pumpkin”

To have some extra fun, there are some pumpkin crafts that could be done, as well. My favourite one is this one, a cute and simple paper pumpkin:

To finish with the pumpkin lesson ideas, I would like to share this cartoon video I found which has got a moral story behind. It is called “Spookley the square Pumpkin”.
