November 20, 2015 Square Watermelons???

Today, we explored square watermelons.  We are studying polygons in math. Polygons are flat shapes with differing number of sides. We learned the number of vertices are the same as the number of sides.

The square watermelon topic was brought up earlier in the day by a student who has a family member in Japan.  The student saw a picture of it, and we wanted to learn more about square watermelons.

As you watch the video listen for these things:
How much does it cost?
What is the problem with them?
How do they get them to be square?
And....How long do they last?
(A BIG THANK YOU to the student who sent us on the learning adventure!!!)
