Learning with Pumpkins

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Pumpkins were plentiful at Oakton this week.  Second graders participated in a “Pumpkin Experience.”  Students used their math skills to estimate, graph, weigh, and problem solve with pumpkins.  The children loved digging out the seeds and “guts” to learn!

Third graders in Mrs. Robinson’s class also used pumpkins for learning this week by creating pumpkin globes.  Student globes included the equator, prime meridian, and continents. 

Kindergarteners rounded out the week with their storybook parade.  The children dressed up as their favorite book character and paraded around the school to the delight of onlookers!  -cg
