Fourth-grade students at Baylis School culminated their unit on plant growth and development by carving their own pumpkins, with their parents on hand as special guests. Students measured the height of their pumpkins, weighed their pumpkins and measured the circumference of their pumpkins before diving in to carve them. They also estimated how many pumpkin seeds were inside each pumpkin. Some of the children brought their pumpkin seeds home with them to roast, while others plan to plant their seeds in hopes of growing a new pumpkin.

Students demonstrated math and science knowledge, while also showing creativity in designing and carving their pumpkins, all while having a great time!
