Pumpkin Unit

        The students are working on a science and math unit on pumpkins.  They  estimate then measure the distance around the pumpkin using non-standard units of measurements. Next, they record the information in their booklet.  They  label pumpkin parts, learn how pumpkins grow, measure the height of each pumpkin, weigh them, and count the ribs.  Finally, they predict which pumpkin has the most seeds and uses place value to count the seeds in hundreds, tens, and ones.
