My favorite part of the entire pumpkin unit is being able to complete hands on activities with the students. Students LOVE using manipulatives for learning. This section of the unit includes a variety of different pages to perform a variety of different pumpkin investigations. Students will have the opportunity to bring in a pumpkin of some kind from home in order to help complete the activities. A letter to parents asking for pumpkins is included. Students will work on sorting the pumpkins in several ways, determine if the pumpkins sink or float, determine if the pumpkin seeds sink or float, taste different pumpkin flavored foods to see which is the class favorite, poll the class on their like/dislike of pumpkin pie, make predictions, and more. Graphing pages and classroom chart/graph parts are included in the unit. A pumpkin investigations booklet is also included (2 to each page) so students can compile all of their data/findings in one easy to locate place. This book also includes pages for students to describe a pumpkin using their 5 senses.
