Last Friday we came up with the idea of making Pumpkin Pie for our new season, Fall!
As we began to look at all our ingredients, we noticed a can of pumpkin we would use. This made us think, can we use a real pumpkin to make pumpkin pie?!
So before we began preparing this recipe, we had a group discussion.
The children were asked what to do with a real pumpkin so we can make pumpkin pie.
“Their is only seeds in a pumpkin.” -Noah
“Their is some yucky stuff inside the pumpkin that you can use and it gets your hands dirty and is orange.” -Ella
“You peel it and it’s really hard.”-Alex
After this discussion we began making our recipe with a can of pumpkin…
“E” helped one of her classmates find 1/2 teaspoon so the would measure out the correct amount.
“N” helped measure out the “pumpkin spice”.
The pumpkin pie looked pretty good to us before it went in the oven,but even better when it came out!
All the children enjoyed trying the pumpkin pie! Next week we would like to make pumpkin pie AGAIN, only this time we would like to use a real pumpkin to make it and see if we notice the difference in taste! We can’t wait to share our thoughts about it.
Learning Goals Achieved:
- Measurement. The student directly compares the attributes of length, area, weight/mass, capacity, and/or relative temperature. The student uses comparative language to solve problems and answer questions. The student is expected to:
(A)compare two containers according to capacity (holds more, holds less, or holds the same); compare two objects according to weight/mass (heavier than, lighter than or equal to);
- Underlying process and mathematical tools. The student applies kindergarten mathematics to solve problems connected to everyday experiences and activities in and outside school. (Identifying mathematics in everyday situations)
