Pumpkin Fun

On Thursday, October 31st we had a whole lot of fun with pumpkins.  Our class participated in a state-wide Pumpkin Activity.  The students got to practice their estimation and measurement skills.  It was a little eerie for some of them when they had to put their hand into the pumpkin to dig out the seeds.  All in all, it was a very eventful project where students had to practice their mathematical skills.  We ended up with a pumpkin that weighed approx. 4 pounds with over 450 seeds.  Who would have ever thought that such a small pumpkin could produce so many seeds!  To end our project a classroom mom (Mrs. Rock) took our seeds home and baked them into a yummy treat. 

We would love to hear comments about our project.
