Pumpkin activity teaches students to embrace uniqueness


Kindergarten students at Maurice W. Downing School in Malverne created pumpkins and listened to “The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin” by Joe Troiano.

“As part of the lesson, students learned to never judge a book, or a ‘pumpkin,’ by its cover and to embrace the unique qualities of another,” the Malverne Union Free School District said in a statement.
