How Many Seeds In A Pumpkin?

We met up with friends from our Nature Club and did a fun project based on the book 'How Many Seeds In A Pumpkin?' by Margaret McNamara. This a fun book that walks a class through an experiment to see how many seeds are in pumpkins and why that might be.

For our group we started with pumpkin observations, estimations of how many seeds might be in our various pumpkins, then the seeded them and counted, graphed their results and we compared our results. This is a fun project to do this time of year with a small group because it makes the collective data more interesting versus just one or two pumpkins.

A great fall activity!!


  1. This looks like fun. What a great idea to take it outside. Thank you for linking to Read.Explore.Learn. I am sharing this on the Read.Explore.Learn. Facebook page this morning.

  2. I always love to see their faces as they realize HOW MANY seeds there are as they're counting.

    Thanks for linking up to Science Sunday!
