Pumpkin Day

Movement Lesson
for Pumpkin Day

To participate in relay team races while manipulating an obstacle course.


  • one small pumpkin
  • one broom 
  • one orange cone
  • marking tape



  1. Separate the students into relay teams.
  2. The students will race by pushing the pumpkin with the broomstick.
  3. Instruct them to go to the cone that you have placed a reasonable distance from the starting line marked with the tape. They will go around the cone and return to the starting mark with the pumpkin being pushed by the broom.
  4. The first team to complete the rotation of the relay is the winning team.

Other Lesson Ideas

  1. Have a pumpkin walk similar to a cakewalk.
  2. Have the students act out the life of a pumpkinseed. *First small and in the ground, then the sprout, grow long vines, bloom, and grow into a large round pumpkin filled with more seeds. This idea would be excellent for a K class that does not enjoy intense competition for athletic lessons. This could be set to music to combine a movement and music lesson.
