We had the best Halloween! Our class Halloween party was a hit! A HUGE thank you to the moms that planned and ran the party!
We wrapped up our pumpkin unit this week as well. Our guiding question for the unit was "How do pumpkins change and grow?" We learned about their life cycle, where and how they grow, and explored pumpkins with our own pumpkin patch. The students practiced their math skills by weighing, measuring, and recording the prices of the pumpkins in the pumpkin patch. Lastly, we carved open our pumpkins and explored the insides. We estimated and then counted how many seeds were inside our pumpkin by placing them inside 10 frames and counting by 10s. We were shocked to find out there were 340 seeds in our pumpkin! On Monday we will plant pumpkin seeds and bury our carved pumpkin in our garden to watch the decomposition process throughout the fall and winter
Next week, we will start learning about Thanksgiving and what it means to be thankful.
