Second grade students Carson Miller, Tabitha Duncan, and Alexa Taylor anxiously wait to see the inside of their pumpkin during Bataan Memorial Primary’s Pumpkin Math event on Oct. 31.
Grade 2 at Bataan Memorial Primary Elementary held their Annual Pumpkin Math event on Thursday, Oct. 31. Every second grade classroom gathered in the Bataan cafeteria and, with the help of numerous volunteers, worked in small groups to complete the fun lesson. Together they measured and weighed their pumpkins, estimated then counted the number of seeds, and finally carved their group's pumpkin into a jack-o-lantern. This fun, holiday math activity reinforced skills of estimation, place value, weight and measurement.
