Pumpkin Math

In math, we used pumpkins to estimate weight, height and the number of seeds in a pumpkin.  They also related the weight of their pumpkin to things throughout the school.  After taking out the seeds, the kids counted them and then found the min, max, range, median, and range.  We had a total of 1,522 seeds in four two lb. pumpkins.  The kids used the cooked pumpkin seeds the next day to better understand how the distributive property works.  In the end, they finally had some pumpkin seeds that they could eat!
