Palm Pointe students discover pumpkin mysteries

Fourth grade students at Palm Pointe Educational Research School @ Tradition spent a recent afternoon unraveling math and science mysteries about pumpkins! Through hands-on activities, students and parents measured the weight, height, and volume of their pumpkin. They then created a bar graph comparing the data they collected. The students predicted how many seeds were in their pumpkins and also used estimation strategies on a large jar of candy corn. A fun day was had by all!  Pictured are Chase Martin and his mother, Lydia Martin, working together on one of the centers.
