Giant Pumpkin Story -- On the Go Lesson

Leah Imoehl
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.

These To Go Lessons can be used to create a "grab and go" style activity with supplies included. Add your local contact information, print, and cut each sheet in half. The left side can be used on the outside of the paper bag or box to identify the activity, and the right side can be placed in the package as an instruction sheet.
