Pumpkins with ghoulish faces and illuminated by candles are a sure sign of the Halloween season.
But what do we know about an integral part of Halloween festivities?
''Why are carved pumpkins called Jack O'Lantern?''
''Who is Jack? Why Carved Pumpkins?''
''What to know the history of Jack O'Lantern?''
This original content is starting with Video-Assisted Learning ([[MyViewBoard_Clips|myViewBoard Clips]]) to help build background and knowledge about the history of Jack O'Lantern.
Next, it’s Pumpkin Time!!! We are gearing up for engaging learning all about pumpkins. <br> These activity sheets will take you through the life cycle of a pumpkin, exploring the parts of a pumpkin and inside of a pumpkin.
Then, describing the inside and the outside of a pumpkin by using the Five-Senses Anchor Chart.
After that, students will take a picture of a pumpkin and throw it to the Whiteboard. <br>They will start to explore various science, math, and language art concepts activities in the classroom: what is the size of your pumpkin? <br> How many seeds, lines are in the pumpkin? Whether a pumpkin sinks or floats when placed in water. <br> Describe your pumpkin and draw your Jack O'Lantern face!
Last, using story mind map- 5W’s method to let students organize thoughts for showing their comprehension of the story.
