Today was a great day for pumpkins! We weighed , measured, compared and even gave them a bath. We were shocked they floated! We also used place value to count the seeds! We put our seeds into groups of ten and then every time we were able to get 100 we put them in a baggy! One person had over 700 seeds!!! We used shapes to carve our faces, too. We found out that the scale we used today was different from the scale we used yesterday! We used a scale to measure weight. We found out that 1,000 gams=1kilogram and that 2 pounds is about 1 kilogram. We also learned that we can uses ounces to measure weight or capacity. We ended the day by starting our “Seed Adventure” stories. We are using a story board like Mike Thaler to create our tale of how a seeds turns into a plant and then back to a seed. Thank you Mrs. Swaisgood and Mrs. Braur for helping today…they got really messy, too!
