PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

6 hands-on stations to measure and observe pumpkins: Students will compare and convert metric and U.S. customary measurements for length, volume, and mass/weight. Students will also estimate and count pumpkin seeds and make qualitative observations about a pumpkin. An optional station is included for determining the density of pumpkins to explain why pumpkins float. This is a fun halloween or fall classroom activity that incorporates math and science content as a review or introduction to the included topics rather than detailed lessons for mastery.

A full, free preview is available to help you decide if this activity will be a good fit for your classroom.
