In our unit about plants, this pumpkin investigation could be utilized to teach students how to look at different types of plants. They would describe the outside, count how many lines there are, describe the inside, and count how many seeds there are. It would be a fun way to get students involved in plant observations.

anchor chart pumpkins. I love this idea for a classroom, you can have the chart up for all of fall and refer to the words used to describe the outside and inside for writing activities. This Pumpkin investigation provides math and reading opportunities. The bottom portion gives the kids ownership over the chart and doing it as a class after reading a fun linked book would give the same feelings.
