Our interactive pumpkin book is not just to be colored and read. Students can truly engage in their learning with hands-on activities that will make learning more meaningful.

Carve a pumpkin to let students observe the inside of a pumpkin and examine the seeds.

Students can plant pumpkin seeds, discuss the needs of a pumpkin plant, and make observations as their plant grows.

Allow creative expression on the plant part pages through the use of tissue paper and construction paper.

Students become pumpkin scientists by measuring, weighing, and testing sink or float.
