We did a lot of activities with pumpkins this week! We explored the pumpkins using our five senses. We conducted an experiment to see if our pumpkins would float and they did. We found out they float because they are mostly hollow inside and the mass of the air keeps the pumpkin above water. After opening a pumpkin, we illustrated the parts of a pumpkin and sequenced the pumpkin life cycle. On Friday afternoon, each student made their own upside down pumpkin pie using vanilla pudding with pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin, and graham cracker crumbs. The students loved making and eating their snack. Thank you to all the parents who helped make our pumpkin study a success by sending a pumpkin to school!
