Once again this year Mapleton Elementary students were surprised with the gift of a pumpkin from Harward Farms. Each student was presented with their very own pumpkin. Students returned to their classrooms to think of as many activities as possible to use their pumpkins. Some of the activities were learning about how pumpkins grow, graphing pumpkins,  estimating to find how many seeds were inside their pumpkins,  pumpkin carving and writing about pumpkins. A great big ," Thank You" is in order  from all of us for the generosity of the Harward Family.  We appreciate the opportunity to use our pumpkins for education as well as just plain old Halloween Fun!!
