We started each lesson with one of our favorite books from the October Bin...
We studied the cycle of a pumpkin from seed to pumpkin...
And then planted our own little pumpkin seeds. : )
We read and recreated scenes from our favorite book Big Pumpkin...and we studied a little pumpkin and learned about all of the parts...inside and out. Then we did a Pumpkin Investigation...
We made a hypothesis of how many seeds were inside.
And we were surprised with the result!
Would her little pumpkin sink or float?
Well, it floated.
And we discussed why.
And in an effort to give my baby girl the "Exploding Science" she was waiting for...
We added vinegar to baking soda and watched it go!
Then we discussed why.
Then we did it again!
And it wouldn't be school here without baking!
We finished the unit with some yummy Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.
So there you go.
Science is doable.
Even for an English nerd like me. : )
