Last week we celebrated Halloween with a jam-packed day of pumpkin fun… Pumpkin Math Day! In the morning, we did pumpkin exploration and measuring. Then, in the afternoon, we had pumpkin food taste tests and played pumpkin math games.
We had plenty of fabulous volunteers on hand to guide students at each of the 12 stations (6 rotations in the AM and 6 rotations in the PM). I was excited to find Kristen Smith‘s FREE Pumpkin Week Activities packet because I really loved her recording sheet!
Since we had 6 tables, each table was covered with a different color of bulletin board paper. Then we copied Kristen’s Pumpkin Math Recording Sheet 6 times, on each of the six colors, and stapled it into a packet. It was so easy for students to find their recording sheet for each pumpkin–since it matched the table color! (and yes, the red table temporarily became the pink table since we didn’t have any red copy paper!)
