This activity will be fun
for the entire family upon returning from a trip to the pumpkin patch. After returning home from picking out the
perfect pumpkin have each family member estimate the number of seeds to be
found inside. Discuss which
characteristics of the pumpkin helped each person with his or her
estimate. Cover a work area with
newspaper. Cut the top off the pumpkin
and give each family member a scoop of pulp.
Now separate the seeds and count them.
Add numbers together to come up with the correct number of seeds in your
pumpkin. You may want to roast and salt
the seeds for a tasty snack!
