A Pumpkin Update

What has been happening to the pumpkins and gourds in the decomposition centre?
It was time to bring them inside for some investigation.
The children wrote down their observations and predictions of what was happening and how the changes have occurred.

Why has this very bumpy pumpkin kept it's shape?

What will happen next?
Will the pumpkins and gourds look similar in a month from now?
 Once the snow is gone, will they still be there? Will we recognize them?
Why have the pumpkins that were cut more decomposed than those that were left whole?
