Fourth grade students had a different twist on math, reading, writing, and science through â€œPumpkinologyâ€ on October 29th. As the students rotated through each fourth grade classroom, they used their pumpkins to study polygons, circumference, scientific properties such as density and buoyancy, story writing plots with â€œThe Keeper of the Pumpkin Patch,â€ and working cooperatively to answer questions about a fiction pumpkin piece. By the end of the day, the students and their adopted pumpkins were amazed at how much fun learning really can be!
