Olympia North Kindergarteners celebrated fall with Pumpkin
Day! Students started their activities decorating and eating a pumpkin
shaped cookie. They went on a school scavenger hunt following clues.
Kindergarteners made pumpkin art combining yellow and red paint. They
completed STEM activities by creating towers from toothpicks and candy
pumpkins. They also tried to balance a small toy pumpkin on a popsicle
stick and compared how a pumpkin traveled vs other fall items. Students
predicted if they thought a pumpkin would sink or float and they
estimated how long a string would need to be to go around the
circumference of a pumpkin. They tested both aspects and recorded their
What a great Pumpkin Day! Thanks to all parents who helped prepare and execute this learning experience for our classes!
