Celebrate the season with a Pumpkin Math & Science Investigation! Students will bring in their own pumpkin to use for the activities. The investigation will have students:
✍Estimating and measuring weight & volume
✍Estimating and measuring the height
✍Putting the stages of the Life Cycle in order
✍Observing properties of the outside & the inside
✍Classifying and sorting pumpkins
✍Creating a bar graph of where the pumpkins were purchased
✍Estimating & counting the number of seeds
✍Comparing and analyzing observations and results
PLUS a letter to families requesting a pumpkin for their child AND a bonus silly pumpkin joke on every page!
This resource download contains a 16 page PDF file with information on how I use this activity, how to print the file as a booklet, and instructions on how to measure the volume of a pumpkin!
