Pumpkin Recipe Math

Pumpkin Math

display-slide-pic

It’s September 22 and that means fall has officially arrived. The leaves are starting to change, the air is getting crisper, and Friday nights have become high school football nights once again. With all of the great things that we associate with the fall, it is nearly impossible to imagine it without one thing: PUMPKINS! This year, why not incorporate some festive fall fun into your math or science lesson with a little pumpkin treat? Below you will find a recipe activity to teach your students about measurement and bring a little bit of fall flavor into your classroom.

Looking for some more fall fun? Consider some of these other activities and ideas!

Pumpkin Seed Activities

  • Explore adjectives by having your students describe the inside of a pumpkin.
  • Learn about estimation by guessing how many seeds will be inside a pumpkin; how many seeds a student could hold in his/her hand; or how many seeds would someone need to put in a line to measure a distance, such as “how many seeds across is the desk?” Then, find the exact results.
  • Use pumpkin seeds to practice math skills by counting, grouping items into tens, twenties, or even hundreds, and completing basic addition and subtraction problems.
  • Roast pumpkin seeds and discuss how seeds and other fall foods, such as apples are healthy snacks.

Awesome Autumn Essay Prompts

  • Have students write a “how-to” essay about their favorite fall activities. Suggest ideas like: picking apples, carving pumpkins, or making the perfect leaf pile to jump into.
  • Have students write an essay in the style of a letter describing fall to someone. Students should assume the reader is someone who does not experience the fall season in the same way they do. Their essays should have detailed descriptions. Sentences may address topics such as the weather, the foods harvested, or the how their area, city, or region does or does not change during this season.

Apple Investigation

Apple Investigation

Apple Exploration

Apple season is here! But apples aren’t just for the lunch room anymore! The classroom activities are endless. Whether you are looking for an engaging writing project, an interactive science lesson, or a cross-curricular unit, Simple Solutions has got you covered.  Below are some possibilities to help you “harvest” the most from your class this fall.

Using a variation of the Scientific Method, have students explore the differences in apple variation. Use our Teacher Instructions and helpful handouts (below) to get started.

Take exploration a step further!

  • Have students write an opinion or a comparison essay using their experiment notes.
  • Discuss adjectives, particularly how students used adjectives in their apple tasting notes.
  • Poll students about their opinions and conclusions in order to generate different types of graphs and charts using the data.
  • Discuss the how apples grow from a flower into a fruit.
  • Learn about the food groups and the importance of eating fruit and other healthy foods.
  • Consider discussing why apples begin to turn brown when exposed to air, and that they are still safe to eat.

Looking to modify this activity for younger students? Here are some options to try:

  • Use apples to explore the five senses.
  • Use adjectives generated by sampling the apples to create spelling or vocabulary lessons.
  • Do some hands-on fraction fun with the help of apple slices.

What’s the Buzz About Cicadas?

Cicada

Cicada

A cicada craze is taking hold at Simple Solutions! Why?  It happens somewhere almost every year, and this year it’s happening in our home state!

Any day now, the 17-year cicadas (Brood V) will most likely be arriving in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, and Maryland. (If you don’t live in any of these states, perhaps the cicadas visited you last year, or they will arrive in your home state within the next year or so.)

Whether you’re likely to see any cicadas this year or not, download these free activities, and use them for reading comprehension, science, writing, or math. If you want to make more worksheets specific to the standard you are teaching, be sure to check out our new Worksheet Generator!  It is packed with problems sorted by standard to create a personalized lesson for your students.

Mental Math

Mental Math

Mental Math

Your little leprechauns will love to work on this mental math activity based on Common Core Standard 3.OA.9.  To achieve mastery, students must be able to identify patterns in sums of basic facts.  Students must also be able to explain mathematical patterns, such as why the sum of two even or two odd numbers is always an even number.

This free activity has two parts, the first has students answer the addition problems using mental math.  If the answer is even, color the space green; if the answer is odd color the space orange.  After the shamrock appears, students will complete the second part of the activity.  Using what they discovered, students will answer the questions to help them see the mathematical patterns.

Learn more about Simple Solutions, our classroom series used in hundreds of classrooms throughout the United States.  Parents can order Summer Solutions  or download our app, Smart-EZE, for their children to work on over summer vacation to help prevent summer learning loss!
