We made a KWL chart this week on bats.  The kids done great with this and I think we all learned something.  The thing that the kids found most interesting was the fact that a bat is a mammal.  We had a great discussion on mammals and I loved seeing all of the information the kids brought in on mammals.  We are definitely going to spend some more time on it next week.

Pumpkin Estimation

 Thursday was tons of fun outside estimating and counting pumpkin seeds.  How many seeds would you think a pumpkin of this size would have?
The kids were quick to give their estimate and one student got pretty close.
 We took the seeds out and grouped them in tens so that we could count them more easily.  I was surprised at the number of kids who didn't like touching the inside of the pumpkin.

 Some, didn't mind touching it at all :)

Caden made the best estimation...way to go Caden!!!
After counting, we cast votes as to how we would carve our pumpkin.
Here is what the class voted on...
