The third grade scientists visited The New York Botanical Garden to explore pumpkins.  We used what we have been learning in our science units in our explorations today.  One thing that we did was use our five senses to describe different pumpkins in different ways.  Another thing we did was use scales and tape measures to take different measurements of our pumpkins.  We made estimates before we measured and compared the actual measurements to our estimates.  We worked very hard, but we had a great time exploring!
