Today, the children explored the pumpkins and did a very good job of guessing! There was quite a range of numbers for the lines and weight – 5 pounds to 100 pounds, and 8 lines to 65 lines. I really enjoyed seeing the wheels turn as some of the girls lifted the pumpkins to see how heavy they were, and another child used the smaller pumpkins to compare the height of the biggest one. It is interesting what science discovery can do!
Today, I got to experience our first seasonal change in the classroom! We brought pumpkins, mini corn, and gourds into the science center 🙂 Our Fall unit will be in a couple weeks and I am very excited to start adding some of those colors into the room. The children were surprised that we brought a HUGE pumpkin for them to observe and practice carrying! I love Fall and all the activities we can do with it.
