Autumn was an exciting time for the
students in Mrs. Scorzelli's kindergarten class. In preparation
for a field trip to the farm, students learned the different
parts of a pumpkin plant. They participated in labeling a
pumpkin plant diagram on chart paper. After returning from
an action packed field trip, students used their artistic
talents as they painted their hand-picked pumpkins. Under the
supervision of media specialist Nicole Taormina, kindergarten
students along with their 4th grade buddies worked as
graphic designers to create autumnal scenes with Kid Pix. As a
culminating activity, the children sampled
apples and made predictions on which variety of apples were
their most favorite. Students sampled the apples and graphed
their taste preferences with
Create a Graph.
