Pumpkins, Seed Counting, and Looking Inside

We learned a lot about pumpkins last week.  We used adjectives to describe them.  We used a graphic organizer call a "tree map" to talk about pumpkins.  We estimated how many seeds were inside a pumpkin and then scraped them all out.  We used 10 frames to count the pumpkins.  We took the ten frames and placed them in groups of 10s to count the hundreds.  We had 384 seeds inside our pumpkin. We also used our digital microscope to look inside the pumpkin and the seeds close up.  If you look at the other post called our "Pumpkin Opinions" we also wrote an opinion paper with 3 reasons supporting our opinions.
