Chainsaw Pumpkin Carving

We have been so lucky to have the support of so many local businesses! This year, students were pleasantly surprised one fall morning when they arrived to GIANT pumpkins, corn stalks, gourds, hay bales and mums decorating the entryway when got to school, courtesy of one of our local businesses. At the end of the fall season, students were able to watch an MCP Dad carve the pumpkin with a chainsaw and explore the pumpkins insides. Are the insides of these GIANT pumpkins different than the smaller ones you carved at home? MCP students got to ask questions, talk about observations, experiment and form conclusions during this fun visit!
