Hello, Scientists and Mathematicians! Grab a pumpkin and get ready to make some math and science discoveries. You can either print out the attached activity booklet or complete each page in . You will need: - a pumpkin - something to write and sketch with - a non-standard way to measure height (LEGOs, cubes, small blocks, etc...) - a non-standard way to measure the circumference (paper clips, string) - a scale (bathroom or kitchen) to weigh your pumpkin on or something you think weighs the same amount - a tub of water or the kitchen sink filled with water to see if your pumpkin will sink or float Click the button to get started. Have fun exploring!
