This is a fun October activity! Students measure how tall they are using paper pumpkins! I like doing this lesson around the time we are doing our pumpkin observations.
*This product meets common core standards:
K.MD.2 1.MD.2 1.MD.4 2.MD.10
-graph for collecting whole class results
-data sheet for comparing tallest/shortest students
-pumpkins in two different sizes (note: for this activity, I find it easier to make pumpkin die cuts instead of cutting out my own pumpkins. I included these pumpkins in the activity incase there were any teachers/homeschoolers who did not have access to making die cuts.)
Please leave feedback if you download this little freebie!

Directions: (also included in product)
1. Choose to make pumpkin die cuts, or print and cut out the attached pumpkins.
2. Tape the pumpkins on a door or wall. Start at the floor and go as high as your tallest student. (This graph goes up to 16 so I recommend using larger pumpkins if you have very tall students)
3. Each student writes everyone’s name in the graph. Measure each student standing against the pumpkins to see how many pumpkins tall they are.
4. Students graph results and discuss data page as a class.
