While North Landing has their own three-ring circus….
Arrowhead kindergarteners from Ashley Eich’s class made Halloween a learning experience. Students took turns feeling the insides of a pumpkin and describing it: “Icky, gooey, wet, sticky, gross” were the popular results. They also reviewed shapes by using them to draw a face on the pumpkin.
And first grade students in Tracy Szczesniak’s class at Windsor Woods confirmed that no matter how big, fat and heavy they are, pumpkins do indeed float!
