Our preschool class has begun an investigation with pumpkins as our focus. We are creating a documentation panel outside of our classroom in the hallway. We posed two different questions for the students to consider when observing a large orange and white pumpkin- “I see…” and “I wonder…” Megan and I are documenting what the children are saying as well as adding pictures and art work. As we move through the topic based around the children’s interests, we invite anyone who stops to read about our work, to make a comment or write a question on a sticky note provided. This makes our work more dynamic and interactive!
In our science and math center, we are doing many activities related to pumpkins: weighing, drawing, observing, reading about, and pounding
