We had some fun learning with gourds this week. In math, we used pan balances and different math materials to see what would balance our gourds.
We also used "inchworms" to make belts for our gourds.
Then, in small groups, we lined up the belts from shortest to longest to compare the sizes.We used our gourds during writing time, too! We wrote descriptions of our gourds using sensory words. Then we put our gourds in the middle of a circle, listened to a description, and tried to pick out the gourd being described.
