Pumpkin Time

Highlights:

Our class had a fabulous time at the pumpkin & apple farm. The students left with new knowledge on bees, life cycles of pumpkins and apples, and products made from them. Thank you to the parents who made it possible by driving and helping with supervision. We also had a chance to map the sun as it moved across the sky this week.Pumpkin patch collage
