Earlier this week, a small group of Otherwise Educating friends took a very informal, last minute field trip to the Pumpkin Patch at our church.
Pastor Taud did a fun science lesson on different types of energy...
...while the children looked on.
Did the pumpkin sink or float?
Next, we had another science lesson where the children dropped different sized pumpkins in a tank and learned that all pumpkins float, regardless of size, because they are 90% water.
The kids made pumpkin snot.
Finally, the kiddos worked together to put a pumpkin jigsaw puzzle together. It was more difficult than we thought it would be.
