Erupting Halloween pumpkins were the order of the day at Franklin Elementary School in Tamara Gundersen's Autistic Support class.

Learning about and practicing measuring and counting were part of the first graders' lesson. 

All of the elements of a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering,Art,Math ) activity came into play as the students made predictions about what would happen when vinegar and baking soda were combined. 

To their delight the pumpkin erupted like a volcano.

Unfortunately, an erupting pumpkin does not erupt with candy, but hey, a blogger can dream can't he?

Ian Garber adds some baking soda to his pumpkin.
