Kindergarten and Pumpkins

Kindergarten enjoyed a combined math/science lesson that included estimation, measurement, and predictions using pumpkins. While working in groups, students estimated how many seeds were inside the pumpkin and guessed whether the pumpkin would float or sink in a tub of water. They also observed the texture and size of the pumpkins. After predictions were recorded, students scooped the seeds out and counted them to see how accurate their estimations were. They learned the darker and more lines a pumpkin has, the more seeds it contains.
