Every 2nd grade had the opportunity to participate in Pumpkin Science!

Each class received a pumpkin with a series of hands-on experiments including Sink or Float & the Science of Fire.  They recorded data such as pumpkin weight. Teachers also had their students’ measure the circumference and diameter of the pumpkin using both English and Metric units.
