Pumpkin Math at Wilson Elementary
Learning about money and it's purchasing power, students in Brenda Morateck's kindergarten class at Wilson Elementary School used their pennies to buy decorations to embellish their Halloween pumpkins. After looking over the containers of ghosts, spiders, bats, Autumn leaves, skeletons, bats and even orange feathers, and the price of each item, students made their selections then paid for them with their "play pennies." The completed pumpkins were the unique creation of each student using both math and art skills.
