Pumpkin Math Adds Up to Hands-On Learning thumbnail138805

Second grade students in Kimberly Passmonte’s class teamed up with their buddy fifth graders in Seth Paster’s class at Mills Pond Elementary School for some hands-on math lessons with pumpkins on Oct. 25. Both the fifth and second graders worked together to estimate the weight, circumference and number of seeds for a pumpkin in cooperative learning groups. They then used tape measures, scales and counting skills to discover the actual numbers.
