    The object you will be measuring: pumpkins

    The specific attribute you plan to measure: circumference around the outside surface

    The unit you will use to measure that attribute: inches and centimeters

    Describe how you will use the unit to compare with the quantity to measure: Depending on what part of the pumpkin you are measuring, you would get a different measurement. Aim for the middle of the pumpkin and measure around the widest part (as opposed to bottom to top). Compare different sized pumpkins.

    Other things you could measure would be as follows:

    numbers of seeds in each pumpkin
    diameter of the inside of the pumpkin once it has been opened
