Pumpkin Palooza at St. Anne Catholic Elementary School

Anthony Bertrand, Kaleigh Hamilton, Payton MacDonald proudly display their freshly carved pumpkins in the Full Day Kindergarten class at St. Anne School in Hanmer. The entire class carved their own pumpkin as part of a class inquiry.

October 25, 2012 - Dozens of pumpkins have made their way to the St. Anne Catholic Elementary School's French Immersion Full Day Kindergarten class! Children were so thrilled to learn about pumpkins that waves of the orange gourd made their way to the classroom to help students inquire into things such as how pumpkins grow and how they smell. Students discovered that the seeds inside the pumpkin can be used to plant and make new pumpkins grow. The students were sent to actively search for a place in the schoolyard where they could plant their seeds in the spring. Katelin Brouse was overheard saying, ”The best part of pumpkins is taking the stuff out of them.” Cameron O'Daiskey thought that, “Eating the seeds is pretty great!” The next part of the inquiry is a video a student found on YouTube about using pumpkins as a boat. Theories on floating techniques are sure to follow!
