Teal Pumpkin Project: Spread the Word!

Fourth Grade Reading & Writing Activities: Teal Pumpkin Project: Spread the Word!

What You Need:

 

What You Do:

  1. Give your child an overview of the Teal Pumpkin Project. You can research the project online at Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), or review the informative worksheet The Teal Pumpkin Project: Promoting Inclusivity. 
  2. Ask your child open-ended questions like, “What do you think about the project? Is the project a good idea? Why would or wouldn’t you be a part of the project?” If your child agrees to participate, then encourage your child to make a persuasive poster to advertise about the Teal Pumpkin Project.
  3. Share information about the Teal Pumpkin Project logo. Ask your child to sketch or brainstorm a poster design that incorporates the Logo.
  4. Help your child navigate a poster-creation tool of your choice.
  5. Brainstorm persuasive words or phrases that may help convince people to offer non-food trinkets. For example, “Help create a safer Halloween for everyone!” or “Do you want a safe Halloween? Offer non-food treats this year!”
  6. Have your child create their poster and print out copies.
  7. Accompany your child to post them around the neighbourhood. 
  8. Feel free to encourage your learner to walk around the neighbourhood and tell people about the posters as you hang them up together. These conversations will give your child a chance to practise pitching ideas and convince others to participate in the project!

Encouraging others to participate in making Halloween inclusive for all trick-or-treaters is a great way to teach your child the importance of helping others. With your participation in this program, you can help create a safer, more inclusive holiday season!
