    By jjj

    I just saw this activity hung up in the hallway outside a 4th grade room.
    Do a mini lesson on adjectives-- describing words. Have the children make a list or use a graphic organzier having them fill in adjectives that would descibe houses-- old, haunted, decrepit etc.
    Your culminating activity would be for them to go back to their desk and use construction paper, etc to make a pumpkin that expresses their adjective.

    So you would have a scary pumpkin, angry pumpkin, a scared pumpkin, a happy pumpkin
    You could have them pick their assigned adjective out of a plastic pumpkin after they have generated a list.
