Pumpkin Parts

We spent time time last week learning about pumpkins in preparation for our pumpkin patch field trip (which we had to cancel due to rain), but we had fun anyway.  I found this cute pumpkin parts diagram and decided that we would first create an anchor chart version:



We talked about how this is a cross section of a pumpkin and what lives inside the pumpkin.  The kids were surprised to learn that a pumpkin had a brain just like they do!

We then glued their version into their science notebooks:

This week, we will crack the pumpkin open (the one I bought!) and compare the pictures (and some other fun things!)
