Our Pumpkin Projects
We brainstormed what we knew about pumpkins, discussed what we wanted to learn and conducted experiments with our pumpkins. We measured and weighed our pumpkins. We predicted if our pumpkins would sink or float and found out that pumpkins float!
We estimated and counted the number of seeds in our pumpkins. Lastly, we carved them into Jack O' Lanterns and put them in the courtyard for the school to enjoy!
