Counting Pumpkins ~ Monthly School-wide Challenge




Each month we participate in a monthly school-wide challenge. For October, the challenge was:

How many seeds does your pumpkin have inside? Is the number of seeds inside a pumpkin related to its size?

We cut our pumpkins into six slices, which was a really cool way to look at it!

We had over 800 seeds in our pumpkin and it had 27 ribs. Did you know that seeds grow along the ribs of the pumpkin?

Why not check it out the next time you carve a pumpkin?

This week we are working on becoming “Pumpkinologists”! Each table will get a pumpkin and they will be completing this packet. Click here for the link.

Happy Fall!
