Take a trip to the pumpkin patch but don’t forget your tape measure!  When arriving at the pumpkin patch, have your child estimate how big around the largest pumpkin might be.  Use the tape measure to check predictions.  If several pumpkins are purchased, work with your child to sort them in a given order (smallest to largest, largest to smallest, etc)  If you intend to clean out or carve your pumpkin, have your child estimate the number of seeds you may find inside.  Was the actual number of seeds counted close to your estimate%3f
