Pumpkin Life Cycle Lunch Bag Book

It's a fun October project, a science activity and an interactive brown bag book to read all in one! I created this first book in a series (a long one, I hope) of science and social studies brown bag mini-books. This one is about the life cycle of a pumpkin! 

It was lots of fun making this sample to demonstrate! I think my little learners will love it! It's super easy to assemble! All you need are some good old brown lunch bags, a few staples, kids who like to color :) and the printables in this pack!

What other science or social studies topics might you like to see in a mini-book? My head is spinning with ideas!  


  1. I love paper bag journals. My students have used them for nature observation--sketching plants, insects, trees, etc...Then they collect little "treasures" in the bag part--acorns, a nice rock, etc... I would love to win yours, as we are studying pumpkins now. Have you seen the old VHS "Pumpkin Circle"? It's really fun and entertaining, and contains many facts about the pumpkin cycle.

  3. This paper bag book is great! I used to make them when I had time for scrapbooking and I love the idea of using them in the classroom!! Great job, Jeannine!

    Another fun topic might be life cycles??? Or, winter holidays? The possibilities are endless!!

  4. I have never done brown bag books before but it looks so good. I would love to use with my 2nd graders. This fits into the new informational module that we are entering next week. I would love to win these.

  5. Haven't tried this kind of project yet, but I love the idea...and my second graders love to make things...they don't even realize they are learning!

  6. I have never tried the brown bag projects, but would love to try it out. I am new to second grade this year - after 19 years of teaching the upper grades. I love it but am scrambling to collect materials and ideas that are just right for 2nd. Thanks!

  7. My daughter has made lunch bag books made with pictures to give as keepsakes, but I never thought of using them in school. What a brilliant idea! I would love to see how you used it to do the pumpkin life cycle.

  8. I LOVE this! I actually love all your brown bag projects, but this is perfect! Thank you for sharing your creativity with all of us. I would love to use this with my kiddos.
