October 26th was National Pumpkin Day, and the 2nd Grade celebrated!
Using their knowledge of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) they measured the height, circumference, and weight of a pumpkin. They also discovered that pumpkins float in water!
Using iPads, they scanned QR codes to record a pumpkin’s life cycle and other pumpkin facts. The best part? Their investigations ended with a pumpkin foods tasting! They sampled pumpkin pie, pumpkin cake, and pumpkin muffins. They voted on their favorite, then graphed the results. Pumpkin pie was the winner!
