Pumpkin Math Printable

This week I am offering a free Pumpkin Math Printable !  

Before we painted our pumpkins we weighed, measured, and compared them all!  This is a fun STEM activity and requires very little.

Some learners need objects to hold to literally “add up” or “take away”.  I highly encourage you to include toys, counters, or other hand-sized stuff to your math lessons!  It will definitely help your math lesson.  A few years we used dinosaurs – even in the bath tub – to teach subtraction. It was also fun!

All you need for this STEM activity is:  pumpkins, tape measure, ruler, and scale plus print this pumpkin math printable.

I made an easy-to-use chart with simple measuring directions and a challenge to find things of the same circumference, height, and weight.  (if your student can’t find something with the exact measurement write what they did find closest to that measurement).  This activity should be fun not miserable.

Print out this free pdf Pumpkin Math Printable and include your pumpkins in tactile math.

If you have an older student check out Pumpkin School with Our Journey Westward ~ where I first saw the idea to incorporate pumpkins in math class.  I needed something for my younger students so I made Pumpkin Math Printable.

Or maybe you just want to build a pumpkin with legos!

    I’m excited to have discovered your Tactile Tuesday, Stef! I hope it’s fine for me to link up even though my kids are adults now. I’m still putting together unit studies all the time, so I’m ready for grandkids! I’m having a great time pinning posts I find here. :)
