Pumpkin or Apple?

posted in: Art/Creative, Cognitive, Science | 0

I’m learning to love Venn Diagrams.  With the fall very much underway, we have done a lot of science and other activities related to apples and pumpkins.  We checked out the inside, the outside, and everything inbetween!  After carving a jack-o-lantern and doing some painting with apple cutouts, we made a venn diagram as a class.  What things about apples and pumpkins are the same?  Which are different?  This final activity of making a venn diagram helped tie all our learning together, and made the kids really think.
