Giant Pumpkin Story -- On the Go Lesson
Anyone who has grown giant pumpkins will agree, the life cycle of a giant pumpkin is fast, enormously strong, and furious. Many things are needed to grow a large pumpkin, including a giant pumpkin seedling, and preparing the soil so it has the correct nutrients. Giant pumpkin record holders also share that they mound the soil over the vine to create a double root system. Most of the prized pumpkins are at least 10 feet from the main root. Check out the life cycle of this giant pumpkin using the handout provided. Then create your own model of the life cycle of a pumpkin, and create a fun jack-o-lantern.
