Testing our Pumpkin Packages

This week, we finished our pumpkin packages and then tested them. Our Principal, Mrs. Osei-Bobie, dropped them out of our classroom window. The students watched from outside to see what happened to their packages. They were very excited to see if their pumpkin packages worked. 3 of their pumpkins were totally fine. One had a crack in it, but that package hit the brick wall as it fell, so we think that’s why it cracked.

We also dropped a gourd and a pumpkin on their own to see what happened to them. Interestingly, the gourd cracked in half, and the pumpkin was totally fine.

We planted some of the seeds from the gourd outside near the playground to see if they will grow into gourd plants.

Gourd

This gourd had a big crack in it after we dropped it from the window. It was very easy to pull the halves apart and see what was inside.
