A Perfect Pumpkin Lesson

Third-graders in Heather Paganica’s class at Tooker Avenue Elementary School had fun learning with pumpkins. After picking out their orange gourd at the PTA-sponsored pumpkin patch, the students engaged in different science and math lessons. They observed their pumpkins and wrote their characteristics on a data sheet. Next, they measured the circumference and height of their fall festive fruit and recorded any unique markings they found. Finally, the students drew a picture of their pumpkins and shared their findings with one another.
