Busy October

We have been working on graphs (data management).  Above are some examples of surveys.  The students came up with a question and then collected answers from their classmates.  They recorded their results using tallies.

After creating this graph, we read the graph and described the results using comparative language.  More students chose Kit Kat than Smarties and Nibs.  Most students like Kit Kat.  Aero, Twizzler Pull and Peel, and Twizzler had the least.

Oh my!  Spiders have come to visit.  

Pumpkin Mania
                                                 Each student received a pumpkin to paint.

                                                  Then we carved cleaned out pumpkins.

Looking inside the pumpkin.

We took out all of the seeds.

                                            And then we counted them.

This is the pumpkin we carved for the Halloween Howler.
