Will it Sink or Float?

Thank you for sending in all the pumpkins! We have pumpkins in all shapes and sizes and have been enjoying lots of fun activities. Below is our representation of our favorite read aloud, Goldilocks and the Three Bears - designed with pumpkins! We hope you will stop by and see our presentation in the school lobby!We have been working on lots of pumpkin activities including measuring the circumference of a pumpkin; making pumpkin pudding; singing our favorite poem, Five Little Pumpkins; reading lots of books about pumpkins; and learning lots of pumpkin facts! Today we went up to the Science lab to see if pumpkins sink or float.


First we made predictions about whether we thought the pumpkins would sink or float.





Then we tried some little pumpkins. Some of us were surprised when the little pumpkins floated.





Next we decided to try a great big, heavy pumpkin.

Some of us were very surprised with what happened...
Did the big, heavy pumpkin sink or float? If you want to know, you'll just have to ask your child!
