Here is a teacher approved list of pumpkin videos for you and your classrooms. This list includes videos that are filled with information as well as rhymes and stories that will get your kids excited about reading and science.
The Pumpkin Lifecycle for Kids by Tim Russell (5:12)
This video offers realistic pictures of each stage of the lifecycle of a pumpkin. However, it does not offer narration so you will need to read the words on the slides to your students. At 3:23 the slides illustrating lifecycle of the pumpkin end and there are a few slides with interesting facts about pumpkins.
5 Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Gate by Kiboomers (1:57)
This short rhyme is a great visual for subtracting 1-5 and so fun to sing this time of year.
Learn Fruits and Vegetables for Kids: The Pumpkin by Your Kids TV (3:37)
This animated video shares basic facts about pumpkins in by using other fruits and vegetables.
Spookley the Square Pumpkin (4:21)
The narrator reads the popular story of Spookley the Square Pumpkin by Jo Troiano. The video is a simple animated version of the story.
Lifecycle of a Pumpkin by Amanda Ellis (2:37)
This song is about the lifecycle of a pumpkin to the familiar and catchy tune of Do You Know the Muffin Man. You definitely want to play this towards the end of the day because this is one of those songs your students (and yourself) will get it stuck in their head and they just can’t stop singing/humming it… don’t say I didn’t warn you.
That’s How a Pumpkin Grows by Brian Vogan (2:13)
This factual song is fictionally animated. It discusses “how a pumpkin grows” (very basic) and picking a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch.
Lifecycle of a Pumpkin by Carrrrxo23 (3:47)
This video describes the lifecycle of a pumpkin in detail but is not narrated. It’s still worth watching because it is set to classical music and very peaceful and calming. (You can almost even play it without reading the narration).
This video will go nicely with our Planting Pumpkins unit. This guide will help your students successfully plant pumpkin seeds and watch them grow. As the teacher, you will love how this book will help you keep the learning on target and the processes seamless and easy.
8 Cool Facts About Pumpkins by Cooking withy Abbey (2:36)
This video is narrated by a young girl. She tells 8 “cool” facts about pumpkins. I personally think this video is adorable and your students will enjoy it.
Sid the Science Kid: Super Fab Lab! Decay by The Jim Henson Company (4:41)
I love Sid the Science Kid! This episode is all about decay. The class investigates a decayed pumpkin and a fresh pumpkin. The vocabulary they use in this video, it is a great way to tie in and/or review important Science terms this Fall.
This video would go great with our Pumpkin Science unit. This unit is filled with science experiments perfect for little learners. Each experiment is set up in the same way so the students can focus on the science and not the process as much.
Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater by Mother Goose Club (1:34)
This familiar rhyme is fun to say along with the video. Encourage your students to really annunciate the p sound and say the rhyme faster and faster every time.
Peppa Pig Pumpkin Party by Justin Goodchild (5:00)
Peppa has a “Pumpkin Party” with her friends where they enjoy creating a jack o lantern, dressing up and spending time with good friends.
