Students in Mrs. Baez’s class conducted a Pumpkin Investigation in which they estimated how many seeds they thought might be inside. Students took out a handful of seeds and estimated how many there were and added up individual seed amounts to find the sum. Students worked with their classmates to round their estimates to the nearest ten and 100, then finding the difference between the estimates and sum. Additionally, students came up with descriptive words about how the seeds looked, smelled and felt, which became their base of their descriptive writing.
