It’s Tuesday, October 16, 2018, and time for Science at ClickSchooling!

 

Recommended Website:

Elementary Science Program – Pumpkin Science

(www.espsciencetime.org/PumpkinScience.aspx)

Age Range: 6-14 (Grades 1-9, with parental supervision)

 

At this site you will find a free set of questions that lead to science investigations that you can easily do with pumpkins at home.

You will find experiments with seeds, pumpkin weight, and learn to determine how a pumpkin grew by the direction of the stem and other clues, experiments in volume, and more.

At the bottom of the list of questions are two links to websites where you can go to find the answers to all of the questions posed on the list. Some cannot be discovered through experimentation, but must be found out through investigation on the Net.

One of the sites links to the terrific University of Illinois “Pumpkins and More” website with all kinds of information, resources, and activities for learning with pumpkins.

The other site, “The Pumpkin Nook”, is a commercial site that we have not reviewed. Parents, as always, should preview the sites to determine suitability of content and supervise Internet access.
