For school Wednesday afternoon, the activity was pumpkin carving. The subjects? Science (we were dealing with a pumpkin after all; there has to be some science to that), art (we were expressing our creativity), math (we counted the seeds by fives and tens), and home economics (we roasted the seeds). Did I miss anything?
Our babysitter, Kim, didn’t have school that day and was able to join us.
Based on a book we read about pumpkins, we guessed that Miss Kim’s pumpkin had more seeds. (It was darker and had more lines, therefore we suspected it had spent more time on the vine.) The result?
Our pumpkin: 578 seeds
Miss Kim’s pumpkin: 398 seeds
I guess we were wrong. That was certainly a lot of practice counting!
