Five Little Pumpkins Challenge

We read the Pete the Cat version of “Five Little Pumpkins” and then worked in teams to build a gate that would hold five pumpkins. We talked about the importance of sharing ideas, compromising, and not giving up in order to be successful. Each group was given the same materials: five clothespins, five craft sticks, and five pumpkin erasers. Every team was able to build a gate strong enough to hold their five little pumpkins!
