The Great Pumpkin Investigation

Monday October 31, the Hay Springs first graders performed The Great Pumpkin Investigation. The Investigation was from 2:00-3:00 o’clock. There were three groups of little “investigators” with three kids to a group. Mrs. Anderson led one group and two parents led the other groups. Each group had their own pumpkin. The little investigators conducted a number of different experiments to do on their pumpkins. The tasks consisted of how many lines their pumpkins had, how big around they were, how tall they were, how heavy they were and many other fun tasks. They also counted how many seeds there pumpkins had. The smallest pumpkin had 491 seeds. The next biggest pumpkin had 461 seeds. And the biggest pumpkin had 432. The class found it funny and interesting that the smallest pumpkin had the most seeds and the largest pumpkin had the fewest seeds. After counting the seeds the kids carved faces on their pumpkins. Mrs. Anderson said, “I think the kids had a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to do it again next year.”
