This is a journal to be used with a unit on pumpkins. The journal is meant to facilitate and guide a multi-day exploration of mathematical concepts using pumpkins. It would best be used with grades PK-2. It explores the areas of weight, height, girth, estimation, description, & counting. I send home a letter asking parents to send in a mini (or gourd-type) pumpkin for our activities. We do all steps at school except for counting & recording the number of seeds inside (since that could get messy and time-consuming with all of those pumpkins)!
