Pumpkin Math

This was a great morning of fun with math - and about 30 other home learners. (+Moms!)

Liam and his group weighing their pumpkin, after guessing the weight, and then estimating (after picking up some items of 5 lbs and 10 lbs).

A table of friends using non standard measurements (unifix cubes) to measure the height of their pumpkin.
Another table measuring the height with standard measurements.
Counting seeds into groups of 10 and then 100s.
Getting that top off!
Liam and Teigan getting deep down, goopy and dirty!
We had booklets where we recorded all of our estimates, measurements, graphs and everything else.
Of course one of the amazing moms made pumpkin muffins which everyone enjoyed while we talked about the graphs.
Who had a fun with math today?!
