Pumpkin Science

Yesterday we did a science experiment to see if a pumpkin would float or sink. The students predicted whether or not the pumpkin would float or sink. We learned that a pumpkin has buoyancy so it floats! 

We also estimated or made our best guess as to how many seeds were in the pumpkin. We were all shocked when there were 410 seeds in the medium pumpkin!

The students then labeled a diagram of the cross section of the pumpkin. This was a little challenging. But the students kept trying to sound out thecwords and label the diagram correctly. We were pleased with their perseverance.

Next, the students voted for the shapes we should use to create our jack-o-lantern face. The class was pleased with the end result.
