A Weighty Issue

This year, for the first time ever, the Marshall Learning Garden grew a pumpkin patch. Much to our surprise, we grew several giant pumpkins! The largest of the three provided a special opportunity for Marshall students to use their skills of estimation to guess the pumpkin's weight. Each class provided a guesstimation and the winner was announced just before the annual Halloween parade. The pumpkin clocked in at 48.75 lbs, and Ms. Intile's class had a winning guess of 48lbs! That’s Ms. Intile’s class above with their prize-winning pumpkin.
