I'm delighted that you have taken the time to drop anchor here at my little teaching blog: Sailing Though 1st Grade! Oh, the places we will go! Enjoy the voyage.

This morning we will be using the pumpkins we brought back from our farm field trip last week to collect, record, and analyze data. We will weigh, and measure both the circumference and height of our pumpkins. Then we will record measurements and sort the class data. Students will compare their pumpkin to the class data and draw conclusions. We will also estimate the number of seeds we think will be in the teacher's pumpkin and count to find out how accurate we were. Then we will finish off our day of "data collection" by participating in a variety of "timed" relay races using our pumpkins.
