2nd grade pumpkin math

2nd grade pumpkin math for a hands-on autumn mathematical activity

It's that time of the year again for Pumpkin Math.  I had so much fun doing this activity with Presley.  We spent the morning dissecting our pumpkin (postmortem!), logging our mathematical predictions and forming scientific conclusions.  It was surprisingly mess free...but my dorky self wore an apron anyway.

Groups we're broken up into six teams.  No time to waste, let's get started...
