Pleasant Hill Elementary School third-grader Emma Jones displays her 3-D pumpkin life cycle craft and her pumpkin-pie-in-a-bag treat. Pike-Scott Farm Bureau Agriculture Literacy coordinator Rachel Smith recently visited third-graders at the school to teach students all about pumpkins. They made 3-D pumpkin decorations portraying the life cycle of a pumpkin, completed cut-and-paste coloring sheets depicting the various parts of a pumpkin, watched an educational video about pumpkins, and made their own pumpkin-themed snack — pumpkin pie in a bag. Third-grade teacher Heather Evans received additional lesson materials involving pumpkins that covered vocabulary, mathematics, grammar and language arts.
