PUMPKIN SCIENCE LAPBOOK

$3.00

A fun, interactive way to learn about pumpkins is by using this Pumpkin Science Lapbook!

This lapbook includes resources to teach a variety of science standards in a fun, easy and engaging way. From pumpkin anatomy, force and motion, life cycle and data collection…this lapbook is perfect for your learners and science curriculum!

You can find this lapbook in the Interactive Lapbook Bundle!


THIS LAPBOOK INCLUDES

Cover
Have your learners color and cut the cover page. Fold a large piece of construction paper or file folder where the ends go to the center. Glue the cover page on the top and cut down the middle after the glue dries.

Pumpkin Title
Have your learners color and cut the pumpkin title. Glue the title on the top of the inside of the lapbook.

Pumpkin Life Cycle
Have your learners color and cut the life cycle pumpkin, cycle pictures (on this page) and number circles the center of the lapbook.

Parts of the Pumpkin
Have your learners color and glue the pumpkin and title on the left ‘wing’ of the lapbook. Have your learners glue the words on the correct part of the pumpkin.

My Pumpkin
Have you learners draw their pumpkin using crayons, markers, paint, whatever materials you choose to provide. Then, have them write adjectives to describe their pumpkin on the cards provided to add into their My Pumpkin pocket on the left ‘wing’ of the lapbook.

Pumpkin Data.
Have your learners go through science data station to measure their pumpkin. Model and provide the materials needed to measure the height, weight, circumference and ribs of their pumpkin.

Pumpkin Problem Solving
Have your learners use their knowledge of force and motion to solve this pumpkin problem. Have them work in partners or groups. Provide wagons, cardboard or other materials for them to work with to troubleshoot their ideas to determine which will work.

LEARNING STANDARDS INCLUDED IN THIS RESOURCE 

Next Generation Science Standards

NGSSK-ESS3-1
Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants or animals (including humans) and the places they live. Examples of relationships could include that deer eat buds and leaves, therefore, they usually live in forested areas; and, grasses need sunlight so they often grow in meadows. Plants, animals, and their surroundings make up a system.
NGSSK-2-ETS1-1
Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.
NGSSK-PS2-2
Analyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull. Examples of problems requiring a solution could include having a marble or other object move a certain distance, follow a particular path, and knock down other objects. Examples of solutions could include tools such as a ramp to increase the speed of the object and a structure that would cause an object such as a marble or ball to turn. Assessment does not include friction as a mechanism for change in speed.

Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills

TEKSSCI.K.5.A
Matter and energy. The student knows that objects have properties and patterns. The student is expected to: observe and record properties of objects, including bigger or smaller, heavier or lighter, shape, color, and texture
TEKSSCI.K.4.B
Scientific investigation and reasoning. The student uses age-appropriate tools and models to investigate the natural world. The student is expected to: use the senses as a tool of observation to identify properties and patterns of organisms, objects, and events in the environment.
TEKSSCI.K.6.D
Force, motion, and energy. The student knows that energy, force, and motion are related and are a part of their everyday life. The student is expected to: observe and describe the ways that objects can move such as in a straight line, zigzag, up and down, back and forth, round and round, and fast and slow.
TEKSSCI.K.9.A
Organisms and environments. The student knows that plants and animals have basic needs and depend on the living and nonliving things around them for survival. The student is expected to: differentiate between living and nonliving things based upon whether they have basic needs and produce offspring.
TEKSSCI.K.9.B
Organisms and environments. The student knows that plants and animals have basic needs and depend on the living and nonliving things around them for survival. The student is expected to: examine evidence that living organisms have basic needs such as food, water, and shelter for animals and air, water, nutrients, sunlight, and space for plants.
TEKSSCI.K.10.A
Organisms and environments. The student knows that organisms resemble their parents and have structures and processes that help them survive within their environments. The student is expected to: sort plants and animals into groups based on physical characteristics such as color, size, body covering, or leaf shape.
