Product Description
Looking for a fun way to get your students some hands-on experience with matter and measurement? Pumpkin Science is a perfect way to blend these math and science concepts with some festive fun. Your students will love practicing their observation and measurement skills, and you'll love watching them get experience using tools like balance scales, measuring tapes, and rulers.

With directions for 5 complete pumpkin stations, each focused around a different inquiry question, your students can work in small group or as a whole class to dig deep into concepts like physical properties, comparing mass, and exploring volume and density.

A student mini-book allows them to record their notes for each station for a record of their learning, which can be a helpful tool for reflection and a great addition to an interactive science journal.

Skills addressed:
✔Physical properties of matter - color, size, shape, texture, etc.
✔Generating scientific diagrams w/ labels
✔Measuring & comparing mass using balance scales
✔Measuring length, height, and circumference
✔Making and testing a hypothesis
✔Drawing data-based conclusions
✔Introductory density via sink & float
✔Comparing & ordering numbers using place value

Product contents:
• Easy-to-follow directions for 5 Pumpkin Matter Stations
• Reproducible pumpkin science student mini-book
• Key math & science vocabulary for each station activity
