This lesson is a fun way for your students to explore the concept of estimation and to practice skip counting, addition, subtraction, and graphing!
Students work in groups to count the seeds inside an actual pumpkin (pumpkin not included!). Then, they work with the numbers to analyze data, represent numbers in multiple forms, and practice adding large numbers!
