My Pumpkin Book

My Pumpkin Book, printable pages to explore science and math concepts.

I am often torn between following our curriculum and taking a break to base our studies on seasonal activities. Then my friend starts forwarding me great blog posts on Easy Pumpkin Math Activities or Science with Pumpkin Decomposition. Oh the choices of homeschooling!

Then my dear friend finally made a connection between our curriculum and the season. We are just completing unit 2 of  Christian Kids Explore Creation Science. We have spent the last 5 weeks studying the first 5 days of creation. I have a blog series on the Bright Ideas Press Blog on how we are using the creation science book in a co-op. 

She wants me to create the pages explained in the Easy Pumpkin Math blog post, create pages for the kids to draw each week the stages of their pumpkins decomposing, vocabulary page, graphs for comparing if salty pumpkin seeds or sweet pumpkin seeds taste better and compile the pages into My Pumpkin Book.

Then here comes the question, “What do pumpkins have to do with days 6 and 7 of creation?” Well Adam and Eve ate plants in the Garden of Eden, you really could study any kind of plant, so it’s October let’s do pumpkin day at co-op. If you are doing Christian Kids Explore Creation Science and it’s not October may I suggest apples, blueberries, or strawberries as they come into season.

I did try to convince the kids we could also take naps for Day 7 of Creation but everyone objected to my suggestion.

My Pumpkin Book: Activities

  • Can I define words about pumpkins?
  • How tall is my pumpkin?
  • How much does my pumpkin weight?
  • How many seeds are inside my pumpkin?
  • Will my pumpkin sink or float?
  • Will my pumpkin sink or float after I have carved it?
  • Which do I like better, sweet or salty pumpkin seeds?
  • Which do I like better, fresh or canned pumpkin?
  • How do I want to carve my pumpkin?
  • Can I cut a piece of string to equal the circumference of my pumpkin?
  • For 3 weeks can I sketch a picture of how my pumpkin decomposes?

      Kristen,

      It takes many gifts coming together…Glad the kids benefit from our different approaches.

  2. Just what I was looking for this morning! Love this! We like to pause our curriculum a few times during the year, too, and focus on something seasonal. It makes the school year more enjoyable for all 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
