Pumpkin Jumble Game: Students toss a die to get pattern blocks to add to create a jack-o-lantern face. The first person to complete his/her jack-o-lantern wins the game. This game develops the concept of probability of a single die as students also have opportunities for Lucky or Unlucky tosses that add a twist to the game.
Pumpkin Math Mat: Students roll a die and place that many pumpkin seeds on the first pumpkin. They roll the die again and place that many pumpkin seeds on the second pumpkin. Next, students write the number sentence that tells how many seeds there are altogether on both pumpkins.
