Pumpkins in the Primary Classroom

If you are able to visit a pumpkin patch and bring pumpkins home, you’re in luck — there are many scientific and mathematical activities you can do with all those pumpkins! Before beginning any activities with the pumpkins we recommend putting each child’s name on his or her “personal pumpkin” with a permanent marker to eliminate any disputes about which pumpkin belongs to whom.
