Pumpkins and Technology

From reading other blogs, I often find cool website suggestions, like this one at Technospud Projects. Jennifer Wagner, creator of Technospuds Project, is hosting a Pumpkin Seed Count for teachers in grades Pre-K to 3. The idea is for classes around the world to compare estimates and actual amounts of pumpkin seeds found in pumpkins. Having been a classroom teacher for years, this is an activity that many teachers do already, so what a great twist to add your data to the website and then have access to data from all over the globe! An added bonus is that this would be an easy way to get teachers who may be a bit hesitant to use technology involved in a project. Registration opened on September 28, and her website has other great classroom technology activities as well.
