Throughout the last few weeks of October, Covert Avenue School kindergarteners learned all about pumpkins. They used their five senses as well as math and science skills to explore the pumpkins and their properties.
As part of one of the activities, the kindergarteners looked at the inside of a pumpkin and used their math skills to count the seeds. They also learned about the life cycle of a plant, completing a sequence activity of how a seed eventually becomes a pumpkin.
As a culmination of their pumpkin unit, the kindergarten classes visited the “Covert Pumpkin Patch.” In the school’s courtyard, over 90 pumpkins were set out for students to enjoy. Each student picked their own pumpkin and decorated it to bring home.
