Mrs. Denison, Ms. McNair and Mrs. Johnson’s fifth grade classes at Blandford Elementary took advantage of the fall season to get creative with fifth grade standards.

Students selected a historical figure and decorated a pumpkin according to the figure’s historical significance. The students also composed a biographical sketch of their respective historical figure.

In addition, students engaged in hands on math activities pertaining to estimation, geometry and measurement also using pumpkins. Each of these activities served as preparation for state mandated testing in areas of math, writing and social studies.
