It’s Growing Season in Kindergarten

PP 007There has been great excitement for learning in the kindergarten hallway at Whipple School!  Students have been learning about how living things grow and change.  They created and labeled each part of the pumpkin growing process:  a seed planted in soil, a vine, a blossom and a small green pumpkin.  Their paper pumpkin patch was beautiful!  Students were overjoyed to find real orange pumpkins magically appeared in their patch!  They each picked a pumpkin to take home, decorate & bring back to school for a fun display!  Classes then got busy carving some real pumpkins so that the children could see and feel the real seeds inside. The finished projects left the students with a great sense of pride in their work. Click here to view a slideshow of this exciting activity!
