Janet M Kelly What do you do with jack-o-lanterns when Halloween is over? Here is an idea I used with students. Pile the jack-o-lantern’s in a corner of the yard and let them rot. Watch them decompose. When I was teaching we called the project “Rotto” (the name given the pumpkins by Trent Soares when he was a kid) Watch the mold start to grow Observe as the pumpkins collapse and distort See how the mold changes color Take a photo once every few days to compare Write or draw what is happening to the pumpkins You can even make this into a Science Fair project by having an intact pumpkin for a control Fun. Educational. Icky. Rotto! Author: adminfresnotimes
