We have had pumpkins around our classroom for the past few weeks and the Kinders have been very curious about them. We decided to do some pumpkin investigating. We learned about the pumpkin lifecycle, measured a pumpkin, drew a picture, experimented if it would float or sink, and opened it up to discover the inside! Many “ooh’s” and “ahh’s” took place throughout our investigations. One group of Kinders even asked if we could continue working after recess to find out more!

After making predictions, we were surprised to find out that our pumpkin floats!
