This journal is great for pumpkin investigations!
I have each child bring in a small pumpkin for our "Pumpkin Math" Day. We also have a class pumpkin (it's too much to open up every one's pumpkins so we open up the big class one!) I let them explore their little ones first and then we do the big one together!
Included in this journal:
My Pumpkin (picture)
All about my pumpkin (how tall, wide, and its weight)
Words to describe my pumpkin (concept map)
Our pumpkins (whose was the tallest, shortest, heaviest, lightest)
Sink or Float? (with this one we do the class pumpkin as well)
Parts of a pumpkin
Inside a pumpkin
If you do things differently and would like me to alter this packet, I will be happy to do so :) Please feel free to message or e-mail me!
