Buckingham Pumpkin Patch

Buckingham turned into a pumpkin patch today!

On this cool foggy morning, some fabulous grade 7’s turned the front of Buckingham into a pumpkin patch. After lunch we went to the gym with our big buddies, for some fun pumpkin themed activities like over/under pumpkin pass, pumpkin boogie, and pumpkin bowling. Once the stations were complete, we headed outside to pick the perfect pumpkin. Everyone was so excited! Once the perfect pumpkin was selected by everyone, the amazing volunteer parents served up some delicious hot chocolate complete with mini marshmallows! We returned to class to examine our pumpkins more closely. We drew a detailed picture of it and completed a descriptive writing piece. Tomorrow we will turn our pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns, by carving them with the help of our big buddies. I can’t wait to  see how they turn out!
