Comparing Apples & Pumpkins

For fall, my Young 5s  enjoy studying all about apples and then pumpkins.

To help reinforce the information my students have learned, we do a Venn diagram.

Venn diagrams are a quick, easy and fun way to introduce comparison & contrast writing to your students.

Children can work on this individually, or pick a partner and put one together.

For preschool kiddos, do this as a whole-group activity by putting the Venn diagram on the board and filling in your students' answers.

These make a nice culminating activity at the end of your apple-pumpkin studies, to once again review all the things they learned.

Completed projects make an awesome autumn bulletin board too. 

For your convenience, I've also included a completed sample.
