"I thought that since this is the Halloween-Thanksgiving season, why not incorporate a lesson on pumpkins/related topics into the classroom. In the Monday edition of the Republican, I found an article on pumpkins on the fun page. So this got me thinking. I looked up a couple web-sites and found an entertainment farm, which is a farm that hosts guided tours. This farm is called the Big Apple and it is in Wrentham, Massachusetts. I also found out from talking to John, one of the workers at the Big Apple, that they use a plethora of pesticides on all of their fruits and vegetable, all of which are synthetic. What I was thinking is that the students could learn about food production (issues in ecology), how fruits and vegetables are grown (botany), and about the pesticides that are used on these fruits and vegetables (molecular biology). We could begin by doing some research in the classroom, then taking a visit to the local farm, and researching possible disadvantages/benefits to using synthetic pesticides on our food as compared to using natural pesticides. If the students find that natural pesticides have more advantages, maybe they could come up with a proposal on how to inform the local farms of their findings, and then follow through by getting petitions signed to help their cause, or talk to government officials on what steps they should take next. They could also talk to local townsfolk to get their perspectives on the issue of pesticides. This project would allow students to learn about science through many different media and teachers. For instance, students will do preliminary research on their own in the classroom, and with my guidance. The students will also learn first hand about vegetables and the pesticides used on them from the local farmers. Students will also be able to get a sense of what the community thinks by going out and talking to the townspeople and any government officials. The students culminating project could be somewhat of a forum, where each student gets to present a part of their findings during say, a town meeting. References: www.urbanext.uiuc.edu/pumpkins"
