Apples and Pumpkins

Through the end of November, our class will be studying apples and pumpkins. We have many exciting activities planned including a community based instruction trip to trade day to look for different types of apples. We will also graph the number of seeds we find in an apple and a pumpkin, survey students and faculty to see which color apples they prefer and how they best like to eat pumpkin, and then graph our results. We will use apples and pumpkins to count, estimate, and solve story problems. After we study both, we will create a Venn Diagram to show how they are alike and how they are different.
