Pumpkin Investigation

Grade 6 FI students Ivan Irazi and Alisha Dominique on the case!

October 30, 2014 - Students in the grade 5/6 French Immersion class at St Bernadette Catholic School participated in a pumpkin math investigation on October 27th and 28th. Each group of 3 students chose a pumpkin and named it. They then collected quantitative data for their pumpkin, such as the circumference, number of creases and weight. After the students examined each group’s "pumpkin" data on a class chart, they were asked to predict which pumpkin would have the most seeds and explain their reasoning. Then the fun began! Students separated the pulp and the seeds of their pumpkins. They estimated the amount of seeds they removed. The students devised their own methods to keep track of the seeds they counted. such as tally charts, making groups of 10, etc… “It was interesting to see that the pumpkin that was the largest and weighed the most did not have the most seeds,” said grade 6 student, Savannah Crossthwaite.
