My Halloween day was fun! In my classroom we did this awesome math activity were we discussed estimating. We introduced the concepts of diameter and circumference. We used this information to apply it to pumpkins. Now, the best part after we really got to bond with our pumpkins, (we gave them names) was that later we were ready to explode them. I know kind of cruel but it's Halloween. We first calculated how many rubber bands it would take to crush them. Surprisingly, it took more than 300 rubber bands for some groups. The suspense was frighteningly fun. Then boom! A blast of pumpkin seeds everywhere. Poor pumpkins we had squeezed them to hard and we enjoyed every minute of it.
How was your Halloween?
