There are 3 main activities:
Introduce the vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too.
Next, have students read the informational articles and complete the different activities for each article. You could have students work with a partner or in small groups or even as a center/station activity. Putting one article and a related activity at each center works very well with intermediate students.
Have students complete the Pumpkins Flip Up booklet and build it page by page. I usually have them do one page at each center or station. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the booklet. Lastly, cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flip up books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12×18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover.
