Pumpkins, Pumpkins, Pumpkins!!!

Yesterday we went on our first field trip to the Pumpkin Patch!  The kiddos had a great time learning about the pumpkin farm and the life cycle of a pumpkin. We are lucky to have a real working pumpkin farm less than an hour away so our students got to see the actual pumpkin plants and pick out their own pumpkin.  We even got to go through a corn maze and take a hayride.

As a follow up to the field trip we read Pumpkin, Pumpkin by Jeanne Titherington.  Students then wrote the stages in the life of a pumpkin and made this adorable 3D pumpkin life cycle to hang in our classroom.
