Students in Lauren Matthew’s first-grade class at Maurice W. Downing have really been “shaping” their skills with seasonal activities. In order to reinforce their knowledge of the lifecycle of a pumpkin, students completed a pumpkin craft activity. Then, using various sized pastas, students made diagrams of a skeleton. The activities served to reinforce their classroom lesson, as well as to serve as festive ways to celebrate the coming Halloween holiday.
