Mini pumpkins make great tools for science and math exploration in the Pre-K classroom. We used mini pumpkins for exploring weight, measurement, and estimation. These activities can be added to your Science Center or Math Center.
This is an inquiry based lesson. The student has to determine if the clay sinks or floats, whatever the clay does not do, the students have to morph the clay so that will. If it sinks then they have to form it so that it floats.
