Math is Always Gourd with Kindergarten Atoms

Syracuse Academy of Science kindergarten student counts the number of pumpkin seeds, and determines the seed shape and size for their fall math activity.

Monday, November 2nd, 2020Let the gourd times roll with Ms. Harnett’s Kindergarten class, as the students carved out the answers to the case of the Great Pumpkin Investigation. During this activity, Atoms became sleuths and determined not only how many seeds were in pumpkins but the seed size and shape, as well as, the height of a pumpkin. It was determined that the amount of seeds in each pumpkin varied but the overall pumpkin height on average was around 16 cubes! Great work, Atoms!
