On Tuesday, we cut open our class pumpkin and observed the insides. While we were observing we colored and labeled the parts. Finally, we created a Parts of a Pumpkin Brace Map.
In Science, we started a new experiment with our pumpkin. We put our cut open pumpkin in a container of potting soil and put a lid on it. We made predictions as to what we thought would happen to the pumpkin over time. The students came up with some good hypothesis. The said maybe the pumpkin would rot, or shrink, or grow a new pumpkin. They drew pictures of what our pumpkin looks like now and of what they think is going to happen to our pumpkin over time. We are going to observe out pumpkin every few days and see what happens.
