pumpkins

Seriously a week and two days left until Thanksgiving break! Time needs to slow down. Here is a peek at our pumpkin study. Here is our very own Pumpkin Jack. He sits in our courtyard. We voted on how to carve Jack. You can see how we did it here.
 

We have been recoding our observations of Jack in our science journals.
 
We also used Pumpkin Jack to learn the life cycle of the pumpkin. Here is the craft we did.
 
We read the biggest pumpkin ever and compared the two main characters Clayton and Desmond.

We labeled the parts of a pumpkin together and then they drew a pumpkin in their science journal and labeled the parts.
 
 
 We used our five senses to describe the outside of the pumpkin. We wrote the adjectives on sticky notes and put them on our pumpkin. Then we cut the pumpkin open and described the inside.
 
 
We compared apples to pumpkins.
 
Look what I found at IKEA! He is perfect for counting syllables and stretching words.

Your pumpkin anchor charts are great! I like how the kids put their post-its on your real pumpkin.
