PUMPKIN OBSERVATIONS


What a great day we had! Thank you to those of you who were able to donate pumpkins. Together with volunteers we were able to do a lot of interesting observations. First, we picked a number to decide what group got a specific numbered pumpkin. Next, we weighed, measured around the pumpkin with a piece of string and then measured the string with a yardstick, checked to see how tall our pumpkin was using blocks and checked to see if it would sink or float. Then, we cut the pumpkins open and looked at the seed compartments before we removed the seeds. Lastly, the seeds were cooked and we were able to snack on them in the afternoon!
