Pumpkins and Place Value

November 5, 2009 -- From evelynsaenz, a teacher, from Florida, who is affiliated with the site.

Pick the biggest pumpkin you can find. Cut off the top and smell the fresh pumpkin smell. Carving a Jack O’Lantern leads into a mathematical unit study of place value that incorporates all five senses.

Counting pumpkin seeds into groups of 10’s, 100’s etc. helps children understand our decimal system and prepares them in a concrete way to understand higher level math.

Scoop out those seeds, roast them if you like and count your way into a concrete understanding of place value.
