These lessons are designed for a classroom of cooperative groups with 3-4 students in a group. Each child needs a pumpkin to do these math investigations. All of these activities have been successfully taught in a classroom of third graders with the exception of the Pumpkin Lines Activity. All of the linear measurement and weight activities can be differentiated by having students measure to the nearest fraction of an inch, pound, or centimeter.
