Here are some pictures of what we did! We worked on estimation and number sense. We read the book How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin by Margaret McNamara and G. Brian Karas. We discussed estimation. Students estimated about how many seeds they thought were in their grade level's pumpkin. They worked together to count the number of seeds in their pumpkins. Kindergarteners and 1st graders used ten frames to count their total number of seeds, and second grade made bundles of 100 to count theirs. All of our pumpkins had more than 35o seeds!! The students with the closest estimation got to take a pumpkin home!
We hope to see you all out for our next event: Thursday, November 21st from 5:00-6:00pm!
