This packet is perfect to incorporate pumpkins in your upper grades class. Who doesn't love pumpkin everything in fall?! I always get jealous when younger grades are able to do all of these cute activities, but I couldn't figure out a way to align them to upper grade standards.
This packet includes instructions and 2 different activity sheets that align to different fourth, fifth, and sixth grade standards. Students will take the dimensions of their group's pumpkin, compare their pumpkin to another groups, and answer word problems about pumpkin world records. With guidance, students will apply what they know about measurement, volume, area, circumference, and compare the pumpkin's dimensions similarities and differences.
Additionally, there are three different creative RAFT writes where students are asked to use what they measured to write in a creative role, to an specific audience, format and on a given topic.
