Aquebogue Elementary Students Make Pumpkin Predictions

November 5, 2021

Students in Jillian Gallo’s kindergarten class at Aquebogue Elementary School recently learned how to make scientific predictions and investigate their hypotheses through a pumpkin exploration activity.

As part of the lesson, students experimented with pumpkins, creating a geoboard of shapes using golf tees, rubber bands and wooden mallets. After removing the golf tees, students decided to test which pumpkin would make a better volcano, one with holes or one without. To complete their scientific experiment, students then checked to see which predictions were correct.
