Given the season, we have decided to investigate pumpkins! After washing a pumpkin on Monday, we decided to hammer little nails into the pumpkin (safely, with a tiny wooden hammer). At the end of the day today, we decided to cut open the pumpkin (the teacher) and everyone had a chance to scoop out seeds! The children all guessed what may be inside the pumpkin once opened up. Very interesting ideas! :)
We will continue our study of pumpkins by studying the life cycle of pumpkins, tasting pumpkin seeds and a variety of other activities!
