Loads of Pumpkin Fun

Loads of Pumpkin Fun!
Posted on 11/09/2016
On October 28th, the students and faculty of the Alternative School gathered for some fun (and education) with pumpkins!  Students participated in a cross-curricular project focused on math, science, teamwork and lots of seeds and fun!  Students worked in groups to discover circumference, weight and volume of their pumpkins.  They hypothesized about the correlation between the number of seeds in their pumpkin and the measurements they had found.  They analyzed data, made charts and graphs and determined which factors had the strongest correlation.  Lots of sticky seed counting and fun surrounded the activity as students realized learning can be fun!  Later students could decorate their own miniature pumpkins to take home for the holiday!
