This is a group project for pumpkin research. Students will be split into groups with an adult leading each group. Each group will have a pumpkin to be in charge of. In this unit there are worksheets with questions for the students to fill out as they "dig" into their pumpkin. Science, Math and Art are all covered. Estimating, counting and decorating are just a few of the things students will be participating in and learning about during this lesson. Parent letters are also included and they will love getting to be part of the learning process with their children. I have been doing this lesson for years and my students always comment that this is one of their most memorable activities in class. I use this lesson with my 2nd graders, however, it can be adapted for 1st or 3rd graders also.
