This week in our class we investigated pumpkins.
We learned about the life-cycle of a pumpkin, learned about it's parts, and explored real pumpkins.
Here are some pictures from the week:
My collection of pumpkin books
We first did sink/float experiments.
And wrote in our journals.
And compared lengths.
Then we weighed our pumpkins.
We measured the circumference of each pumpkin.
Each table counted how many seeds were in their pumpkin.
They put 10 seeds in each circle,so we only had to count by 10s! Genius!
We made a flow chart to explain the life cycle of a pumpkin.
And turned it into writing.
Then the kids labeled the parts of a pumpkin and wrote their own descriptions of the life cycle.
Today we voted on how to carve one of the pumpkins.
This is what they voted on.
And worked more in our pumpkin journals.
It was a busy, but fun week!
