PJs and Pumpkins!

We had a fun day yesterday, wearing our PJs and counting how many seeds were in 4 different pumpkins.

We started by reading this book which helped us make predictions about which pumpkin would have the most seeds.


We then scooped all of the seeds out of the pumpkins.






Some of us didn't mind "getting into" our mushy gushy work...






 
...while others preferred to use spoons.






















We organized the seeds into groups of 10 so we could count them more easily. 






We were surprised that even though each pumpkin was a similar size, they had very different amounts of seeds.  The least was 181, and the most was 703!!






It was a great day, having fun and doing math at the same time!!
