A Tough Nut to Crack

Children, based on a set of criteria, evaluate the quality of pecans. They research recorded history of pecan trees as well as how their seeds moved across western Missouri into southeastern Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Mexico. In addition, in groups they complete a worksheet, weigh and measure pecans. Be aware that it will take some thinking and planning in order to really incorporate this into your Common Core focus.
