AMPS has Pumpkin to Talk About

MPSD Incorporates Multidisciplinary Learning in Celebration of Halloween

Miller Place, N.Y. (November 2020)—Students and staff at Andrew Muller Primary School (AMPS) in the Miller Place School District had pumpkin to talk about during the building’s recent Pumpkin Patch event for kindergarteners. Together, AMPS’ young students commemorated the holiday through a multidisciplinary approach by incorporating English Language Arts (ELA) and science to engage in imaginative ways. In ELA, classes took pen to paper for a writing assignment that utilized adjectives and sentences to describe the students’ perspectives of pumpkins. In science, classes assessed and analyzed the growth of pumpkins, as well as the life cycle.
