This activity was created to go along with the book, "How many seeds in a Pumpkin?" by Margaret McNamara. There is one page (Comprehension Questions) that goes specifically with the book - all other pages could be used without the book.
Please download the preview to see the actual pages.
This packet includes the following:
-A page to describe the pumpkins' appearance and estimate seeds.
-A page to draw pictures of the three pumpkins.
-3 pages to use to count the pumpkin seeds (by twos, fives, and tens).
-A page with comprehension questions from the story.
-A page to complete after your "investigation" asking questions about your pumpkins and their seeds.
-3 pages (1 for each pumpkin) where students will write the numbers of seeds in a variety of ways (expanded form; base ten blocks, etc.)
