CES students count pumpkin seeds

Campbellsville Elementary School students recently did an experiment with pumpkins to guess how many seeds might be inside.

 

In Patty Haley’s third-grade class, students were recently put into groups and given a pumpkin.

 

Students were asked to analyze whether the size of the pumpkin determined how many seeds were found inside.

 

After making their guesses, students got all the seeds out of their pumpkins and began counting.

 

When all the seeds were counted, students made a graph to see who had the most seeds, and if the size of the pumpkin really did determine the number of seeds inside.

 

Students were surprised to see their results varied.
