Today, we got out very own class pumpkin! We are so excited. We are going to have a week filled with "pumpkin investigations" where we study and experiment with our pumpkin. To begin, today we all touched and felt the outside of our pumpkin, observed it with our eyes, and then drew what the pumpkin looked like. Later in the week, we will be measuring the pumpkin, and then eventually carving it open to feel the inside and count the seeds!
The past few days at school, we've been talking about the season Fall and how the leaves change colors and fall off of the trees. Today, we went on a leaf hunt around the neighborhood to collect our own leaves! We found so many beautiful leaves. Tomorrow, we will sort them by color and also use them for some art activities!
We have been using marbles this week for a few different activities! First, we painted using marbles, paint, and a box! The paintings turned out amazing. We also had a "marble run" open in our science center! Students were given a box filled with supplies to create their own marble run. Their creations were incredible!
