Pumpkins, Math & Art in Mrs. Bennett’s Class

Students work on pumpkin

Mrs. Bennett’s 4th grade students enjoyed a fun hands-on learning experience that combined pumpkins, math and art! Working together in collaborative groups, students first removed the seeds from the pumpkins and then used the seeds for different math exercises

“Students were tasked with counting seeds and using their total for a review of word form, expanded form, and using a place value chart to multiply by 10! In the end, each group came up with a design and painted their pumpkin!” said Mrs. Bennett.
