We learned a lot of information about pumpkins last week! First we looked at the parts of the pumpkin life cycle. We cut out the parts and sequenced them during morning work. We read two books- "It's Pumpkin Time!" and "How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin?". On Friday, we examined a pumpkin in class. We came up with words to describe the outside and the inside of a pumpkin. We learned that an estimate is a smart guess. We estimated how many lines/seeds were in our pumpkin. There were 307 seeds inside our pumpkin! Then we came up with ideas on how we should carve our pumpkin.
We also had an art lesson based on pumpkins. We drew pumpkins and we experimented with paint mixing. We discovered that when you mix red and yellow paint you can make orange paint. Make sure to check out our fantastic work on the corridor next week!
