Beware of the Pumpkin Muncher! Today we practiced greater than and less than (comparing number quantities) with a lifesize "Pumpkin Muncher" workmat! I posted about our Runaway Pumpkin unit earlier. (You can click on the unit below) A smaller version of this activity is in that unit, but I wanted to bring it to life! I made our workmat out of a shower curtain liner (Thanks, Dollar Tree) and just taped off some "pumpkin shapes." I made a giant muncher (greater than and less than symbol) from two long paint sticks and duct tape. I added a giant wiggly eye and tah-dah! The kids took turns grouping themselves in the pumpkins while others counted and decided the placement of the Pumpkin Muncher. So fun!
