measuring with pumpkins

How many pumpkins tall are you?

Today we measured in pumpkins.

Yup, orange, round things, grow on a vine, used to make jack-o-lanterns.

Well, paper representations ...

First the kidlets measured themselves on the pumpkin measuring chart.  Good number recognition,  and counting practice.

Each child recorded their pumpkin height.  Click for your free download.  It make a great class book.

In the afternoon we measured with pumpkin measuring sticks.

I put out a bunch of random objects from the classroom and the kids found some other interesting things to measure.  We discovered that our carpet is 92 pumpkins long.
