CPS Second Grade Pumpkin Decomposition Project

In preparation for second grade’s spring Earth Science studies, we researched where our trash goes and prepped a project we will be digging up on Earth Day! We hollowed out a pumpkin, filled the pumpkin with our snack time trash, and then buried our pumpkin behind our school! Our second graders placed seeds, nuts, plastic wrappers, juice boxes, apples, carrots, and goldfish into the pumpkin! We made predictions as to which items would break down between now and April – and which snack items would not! We are so excited to dig up our pumpkin in the spring and make our observations!
