Mrs. Ortiz's Students Five Little Pumpkins STEAM Activity

The Pre-K class took part in Five Little Pumpkins STEAM Challenge. After reading the story, students brainstormed about different type of gates that might hold five pumpkins. Students explored and built their structures using wooden blocks, cardboard tubes, craft sticks, clothes pins and different size pumpkins. 

Afterwards, the students worked together to make a long and steady gate to hold five real pumpkins. Our challenge was a success!
