Pumpkins

    

We read this book before  carving our pumpkin and storing some of it to watch decay.

 

Some great life cycle of a pumpkin sequencing cards can be found at:

We cut open a small pumpkin and added soil and water to see if the seeds would grow.  Look - our first little sprout! 

 

 

 

 Three months later...the same pumpkin plant growing outside our window:

April update:  Flowers!

 How many things can you do with a tiny pumpkin?  Ours started in a large guessing jar, then we weighed them to see if they weighed more or less than a pencil, an apple, a book, etc.  Finally, at our class Halloween party, we each decorated one and used them as table decorations.
