Pumpkin Memories

We had a week of pumpkin fun. We estimated and measured the circumference of our class pumpkin. We measured its height with cubes and we performed an experiment to see if it would sink or float. Most of us thought it would sink, but we were wrong. Our pumpkin floated! On Friday, we cut our pumpkin open. We took turns pulling out the pulp and seeds. We made brace maps to show the parts of the pumpkin and we watched "The Pumpkin Circle." Next week, we are going to sprout pumpkin seeds and lima beans .

We measured how tall we are using a pumpkin ruler then we made a class book.

We learned about the parts of the pumpkin. We made a brace map to help us remember the parts we learned about.
