Pumpkins here-pumpkins there- pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere. Hey everyone we had a busy week last week, but it was SO MUCH FUN. Let's take a look back at our fun-filled events. We have been talking all about pumpkins - the life cycle of a pumpkin- and stages-we even carved a pumpkin and the students got to scoop out the seeds with their hands- it was great!! We called him Petey the Pumpkin. We had some first timers in our class- they loved it!!! The last activity with pumpkins we did was on Thursday with our pumpkin taste testing party. We taste tested 4 kinds of foods that have pumpkin as an ingredient- you know at first I had the little miniature candy corn pumpkins and some large marshmallows that were shaped like pumpkins- but when I looked at the ingredients pumpkin was not anywhere- so I had to go hunting in our local grocery store and found a pre-made pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread and pumpkin cookies. I found a bag of pumpkin seeds at the local Dollar General.
After we tasted tested our pumpkin foods we graphed them on a big graph for our room and we also completed a bar graph practice sheet that went along with our lesson.
