Food Technology Health  ESL Pumpkins

Autumn, Harvest, Thanksgiving: Your students will enjoy learning about pumpkins and finding out some of the facts they never knew about them. The workbook starts with the life-cycle of pumpkins from seed to soup and carved shell. Students are then challenged to think about why certain things, like rain, soil, etc… are good for growing pumpkins, find out about some botanical facts and finally are made to think about uses for the various parts of a pumpkins. There is a crossword puzzle at the end of the workbook and an answer key is provided separately.

The workbooks - UK English version and US English version, are included as pdf files, each taken from both A4 and letter formats.

This resource pack also includes picture and word cards for students to match up and put into the right order prior to completing the tasks in the workbook, if you so wish.

A board game is included and will serve as perfect activity to consolidate your students’ knowledge of pumpkins. It’s always good to know where they come from and where they end up! (the pumpkins, that is…) :)
