Pumpkin Madness Day
4th grade students participated in Pumpkin Madness Day. On this day students learned many facts about a pumpkin and the parts of a pumpkin during science class. They listened to books about pumpkins and painted pumpkins during reading class. During math class, students were asked to estimate special properties of pumpkins like height, weight, circumference, and the number of seeds in their pumpkin. Then students had to come up with a strategy for counting all the seeds in their pumpkin and execute the plan.
