I used the life cycle printable cards from A to Z Teacher Stuff
but I used them as little 3-D books that open and close.
The students also took turns coming up and putting the various stages of the pumpkin life cycle in order on a large chart to review what we had learned.

We also sequenced the story - this is a great story to work on sequencing and I found some great Free Big Pumpkin printables from Kinderpillars on Teachers Pay Teachers. Then, I had the students practice retelling the story using their sequencing charts and they illustrated and shared their favorite part of the story. So much learning from one little story.
It was a wonderful and memorable week filled with lots of hands-on pumpkin learning!
