Pumpkins…Pumpkins and more Pumpkins

This month we began by making a foldable about pumpkins!  We studied about pumpkins and learned a lot of pumpkin facts.  We measured pumpkin circumferences,  estimated how tall our pumpkins were with cubes and then measured to get the best actual height, the life cycle and a vote on how people like to eat pumpkins.  At the end of the month, students estimated the number of seeds they thought their pumpkin had and then all the fun.  We cut them open and counted all the seeds for an actual count.  Students estimated very low and were surprised the number of seeds in each pumpkin! We answered questions about our pumpkin relating to our senses.
