Many of my kiddos have never had the pleasure of carving their own jack-o-lanterns and have hand no experience with the interior of a pumpkin at all. These small opportunities are invaluable in helping them think more broadly about the world around them. I remember one student last year had no idea you could dye Easter eggs. She simply thought they only came in plastic.
Halloween and pumpkin math is so versatile. I've seen activities including counting, sorting and graphing types of candy. We are working on measurement so we measured our pumpkins in both standard and non-standard units. The kids had a blast!
