We ended the integrated math/science pumpkin unit of study by examining and answering questions of graphs I generated using student data. They enjoyed seeing who had the most/least seeds, heaviest/lightest etc. They were surprised that the size of the pumpkin did not determine the number or weight of seeds.
Once the children examined the graphs, they were asked to organize their data into a popplet. This simple app called Popplet allows a student to create Graphic Organizers ( G.O. Charts) using pictures, drawings or type written information. It is very visual and organized.
They were given back all their completed worksheets in a stapled book as a resource to complete this final project. It was a motivating way for the children to look at all they had learned about their pumpkin .
I was also able to print these popplets for display as well.
