The Pumpkin Experiment Continues...

Well, our pumpkin sprouts just keep growing...
 But the pumpkin just keeps getting more and more rotten...
Some sprouts have even started growing through the pumpkin skin!
So we decided to give our sprouts a new home, and continue to watch their growth. We planted the entire pumpkin inside a  pot. I'm not sure how long we can keep it growing inside the pot and inside our classroom, but it will be another fun experiment to find out!
Here are some fun Science Journal entries about our pumpkin experiment.


  1. I love this idea! Every year we grow sprouts from our Indian corn and it's pretty amazing. Never thought of doing it with a pumpkin. Thanks!

    1. Lorry, how did you plant the Indian corn?

  2. I was trying to decide what to do with the pumpkin on my desk. We will do this experiment next week.
