#58 - From Seed to Pumpkin by Wendy Pfeffer

Summary:  In the fall pumpkins are everywhere: in the supermarket, on doorsteps, and in scrumptious pies. From Seed to Pumpkin clearly presents how the plant develops from a tiny yellow seed to a big orange pumpkin.  

Suggested Activity: Sink or Float

Gather a variety of sizes of pumpkins. Have the children share their hypotheses about each pumpkin. Will it sink or float?  Why do they think that way? Are you wondering how this science experiment will turn out?  Even a 25 pound pumpkin floats!
