I use this lesson with my class around Halloween time. This is a 2 part lesson. In the first part, I buy each group a pumpkin to work with. Each group makes predictions and names their group pumpkin. They use various measuring tools (rulers, tape measures, scales, etc.) to make measurements about their pumpkin. After they collect data, they compare it to their predictions. Then we compare all the groups' data on a class chart. Students answer questions about the class' findings. In the second part, we take a poll on each student's favorite pumpkin. Some students may choose their own group's pumpkin as a favorite, or they may choose another group's pumpkin. We take a vote and chart our votes on the board. The students then make a bar graph and answer questions about the class' favorite pumpkin by reading their graph. They also need to create their own number word problem using the information from their graph. Included is a criteria checklist including 2nd grade Math standards that the teacher can use to assess each student or students can use to self assess themselves. Students will love this wonderfully fun activity!
