It’s watermelon season! Use this refreshing summer treat to beat the heat and learn science! At this website you’ll find a “Teacher Toolkit” with watermelon-themed science lessons for grades 3-12 (along with an activity for little learners too).

When you get to the site click on “Printable Worksheets” on the menu on the left side of the page and a new page will open. You’ll see a menu of lessons for a variety of subjects (language arts, math, social studies) and science. The science lessons include:

  • An Edible Cell Activity
  • The Science of Watermelon Seeds
  • The Science of Seedless Watermelons
  • Watermelons and Weather
  • Will Watermelons Float?
  • And more

Click on any lesson and a printable .pdf file opens with the complete lesson, instructions, materials list, etc. When you’re through exploring the lessons, use the same menu to access “Activities and Games” that includes info on how to grow a watermelon, watermelon-themed stories, and a word search. You can also access recipes, coloring sheets and even sing along to a watermelon song in English or Spanish!

Be sure to click on the menu on the right side of your screen to print out additional holiday-themed activity sheets, learn some interesting facts about watermelon, get some healthy eating tips, and find out how to host a “Watermelon Day” – a fun idea for a homeschool support group!
