“Pumpkin Jack” Life Cycle Lesson
This lesson teaches kids about life-cycle of a pumpkin including what happens when Halloween is over, and all you are left with is a rotting pumpkin on your porch. This book is amazing at telling the story of a boy who threw out his Jack-O-Lantern only to find that the next spring, there was a new sprout where the pumpkin had been.
There are 45 different types of pumpkins and each seed holds unique DNA for new pumpkins. Some pumpkins even have unique names like: Cinderella and We-Be-Little. Find out how and why we have so many pumpkins of different shapes, sizes, and colors. Try your hand at creating your own variety of pumpkin.
