## Yummy, Fun, Math with Circles!

A student who followed directions and separated the strands of licorice.

And a student who didn't quite follow directions with the Twizzler strands still stuck together, but recognized the parts of the circle nonetheless. These cookies were a little crumbly from their trip to school. Hence, the imperfect circle shape.

## Try These Compelling Fall Pumpkin Activities…

I so look forward to a crisp fall day after the humid triple digit temperatures we have had in the south.  I am already wanting to hang my fall wreath on the door!  Maybe it will hasten fall weather.   With the fall weather I always think of this pumpkin unit I taught with my precious third graders in which the students all did math investigations with pumpkins.  The following are pictures of the activities we did with the unit.  I also made the lessons  available on Teachers Pay Teachers.  I added one lesson to it –pumpkin lines– to make it a full week unit.  We measured pumpkin’s weight, circumference, height, and counted the seeds (eeew so messy, but fun!)  Take a look below.
