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!

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