For the day, kindergarten teacher Wendy Manninen’s class went to the library to learn about pumpkins for Halloween. The librarian Samantha Silag held one class period to read a book on the lifecycle of a pumpkin, discover the inside of a real pumpkin, and then finally make their own out of paper and other class materials. At the end of the day the students got to go home with their new pumpkins and also got to take with them the fun facts they learned that day.
