Area-the space an object takes up

So far during our pumpkin math exploration we have learned about estimation (an estimate is a thinking guess), height, and weight. Today we are measuring the "foot print" of our pumpkin (otherwise known as the area). First we made an estimate.  Then, we traced our pumpkin's foot print, and we covered it with blocks. We needed an organized way to count the blocks, so we used 10 frames and counted by 10's!  After we had some fun building towers! 😊
