Pumpkin Investigators

We put on our investigator caps and studied the mysterious pumpkin. We needed to investigate the length of the pumpkin, describe the characteristics of the pumpkin and explore what was hidden in this so called pumpkin. Let me tell you, we were amazed with the discoveries made! We used cubes to measure the length of this pumpkin. We had a wide range of predictions as to how tall the pumpkin was. Soon after we concluded that our pumpkin was 11 inches tall, which was the equivalent to 15 cubes. We used some descriptive words like: large, big, higher to reach, rounded, small stem and lines. The most exciting discovery was learning that seeds sink! Who knew! Our Pumpkin Investigation was a success!
