Fall Fun: Pumpkins, Election Day, and Veterans Day



On Friday, my kids were dressed up in costumes excited for the carnival, so I figured I only had about two hours of work I could get out of them, then the rest we would do Halloween stuff because, let's face it, the Friday before Halloween is a terror.

So we did a prediction unit! Using our class pumpkin who has been in our room since the beginning of October, we carved a jack-o-lantern.

1. We predicted what the inside of the pumpkin would feel like once I cut the top off.

2. Then they predicted how many seeds there were in our class pumpkin. 
(I requested the students help me separate the seeds from the guts before we counted.)
