PUMPKIN INVESTIGATION … The St. Mary School 1st grade students recently completed a pumpkin investigation lesson. They carved pumpkins and learned about the life cycle of a pumpkin. Then they measured the height and circumference of their pumpkins. Once they opened their pumpkins, they counted the number of seeds inside. They also used the seeds to practice counting by tens. It was such a fun way to get messy and practice math. Pictured are Avery Everetts, Levi Boeke, Carter Adkins, and Abigaile Lindenmeyer NUMBER SENSE INVESTIGATION … The 1st grade students at St. Mary School have been working on their number sense skills. Using objects, they represented each number from 0 to 20. This visual and tactile activity helped students understand how numbers increase as they count up.
