Pumpkin Investigations

We're headed to the pumpkin farm tomorrow!  At the end of our trip, each student will get to pick out a pumpkin to bring home.

When we return to our classroom we will measure the height, weight, and circumference of our pumpkins using this investigation sheet, some cubes, links, and my tired old bathroom scale.

This week we are also going to continue our pumpkin investigations by reading 
We will be opening up a pumpkin, labeling the parts, and counting seeds.  Then, it's into the giant plastic barrel (sealed with an excessive amount of duck tape) to watch Jack decompose.  The kids will observe Jack's changes and record their observations weekly.

I'll be back later in the week with more pictures (and printables) from our adventures this week.

I love fall!
