This is a fun Halloween activity in which students get to decide how they want to carve a whole class pumpkin. It is not required to carve a pumpkin to complete this activity. It could be phrased as a hypothetical if you are not able to actually carve a pumpkin with your class.
If you are carving a pumpkin with your class, this activity is a fun way to gain student input on how they want it to be carved. Students get a voting sheet where they choose between 2 different eyes, noses, and mouths. There is also a graphing sheet where you can compute the results of your vote. Finally, there is a comparing sheet which includes the phrases "least" and "most" making this activity ideal for Kindergarten (but can be used in other grades as well). Also included on that sheet is a place for students to illustrate what the pumpkin should look like according to their results (also ideal for classes who aren't able to actually carve a pumpkin).
It is suggested that once your votes are calculated, the whole class helps to carve one pumpkin using the results as guidance in how it should be carved.
I have been doing this activity for years and my students have a blast every time! Please let me know if you have any questions!
