In celebration of the fall season, students from Carrie Almskog’s fourth-grade class at Academy Street Elementary School recently utilized their skills spanning multiple subjects as they worked collaboratively on a pumpkin-themed activity.

With assistance from parent volunteers, the students rotated through five pumpkin-themed stations and worked together to measure their pumpkins physical properties, create an artistic interpretation and brainstorm the multiple uses of the gourd.   

Additionally, the students drew inspiration from the novel “James and the Giant Peach” to write a creative essay explaining what it would be like to explore the inside of a pumpkin.
