Pumpkin Math is a FUN way to incorporate a pumpkin into Halloween week at school. You could do this in small groups with more than one pumpkin, or you could use one pumpkin per class.
You will need:
* a large cooler or container (to test sink/float)
*a carving Kit
*scale to weigh the pumpkin
Students will measure the pumpkin, weigh the pumpkin, and count seeds in the pumpkin. It is a great way to practice 2nd Grade math skills and toss in a little science! The recording sheet will allow them to predict before each step.
The chart is easy to read- and the students will love it!!! I also including a How to carve a pumpkin writing organizer :)
