WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH A PUMPKIN?

31-40

31

Have children cut a string that they think would go around the pumpkin.
Submitted by: Caye Aho

32

Put a small pumpkin in a box (don't tell your students what it is), and play 20 questions. Children get a chance to ask questions such as: "Is it round?", but not questions such as "Is it a cat?" Keep track of questions by making tally marks on the board. After 20 questions, then they can guess what is is.

35

Place the pumkin on a table (optional: add additional items such as a farm hat, an apple, a basket...) Children can then paint a "still life" painting and title it.

Have a classroom contest. Draw a blank pumpkin on paper, xerox, and let the kids submit different faces. The class votes and the teacher carves the winner's face on the class pumpkin.

38

Predict the weight of the pumpkin. Weigh the pumpkin and see if students/other items in the classroom equal the weight of pumpkin. (ie: how many pumpkins equal the weight of one student?) Discuss more than and less than concepts.

Recycled Pumpkins You get (3) pumpkins each a little smaller in size such as a snowman. Paint them with white paint, stack, and decorate for winter.

40

I use a pumpkin to incorporate the letter Uu into Halloween. (It just doesn't fit in anywhere!) We use a paper pumpkin cut from construction paper and tear black paper shapes to make an "Ugly" face. Its not often the kids get to use the word "ugly" and they love this project. A memorable word and project really helps them remember the letter Uu.
