Mr. Tiffin’s class has three pumpkins-a small one, a medium one and a large one-and they are going to count how many seeds are in each pumpkin. First they get to makes estimates and then they get to count. There is a group counting by two’s, another group counting by five’s and another group counting by ten’s. As we were reading this book at our house we learned that the number of lines on a pumpkin can give you an indication as to how many seeds it has compared to another pumpkin…more lines=more seeds.
