Practicing Pumpkin Math

Second-graders in Barbara Haining’s class at Mills Pond Elementary School used their pumpkins to practice their math skills on Oct. 31.

Working in groups and with the help of parent volunteers, the students made predictions on the measurements and weight of the pumpkin as well as the number of seeds inside. The groups then weighed and measured their pumpkins. Next, the second-graders cut open their pumpkins, scooping and counting all the seeds in groups of 10.
