First Graders Have Fun At Fall Festival

← Back Print This Article

Students in all three Washington First Grade Classes enjoyed participating in their class’ Fall Festival.

 
The Festivals were held in the cafeteria, where students were able to rotate through six activity stations, themed around fall activities.
 
Students were able to plant pumpkin seeds, which will be planted in the Washington Garden once they are large enough. They also were able to estimate the height and width of pumpkins and then test their hypotheses by using measuring blocks and pieces of string.
 
Before the Festival, the students read the story, Leaf Man, and had the opportunity to create their own fall leaf pictures using real leaves.
 
In “Sink or Float,” students had to guess if Halloween themed items would sink or float when dropped into a pan of water.
 
The students especially enjoyed the apple tasting activity, rating the tastes of three different varieties, and then graphing their favorites to see which was number one with the class.
 
The final activity was pumpkin decorating, and the students really enjoyed using their creativity to customize their own pumpkin.
 
The students are taught by Mr. August, Mrs. Ellison and Mrs. Walsh.  Please click here to see some photos from Mr. August's class' Fall Festival.
