Pumpkin Exploration

At the end of our pumpkin week we had the chance to explore a real pumpkin. First we talked about the outside of the pumpkin. Some words we used to describe the pumpkin were:
  • orange
  • round
  • cold
  • bumpy
  • soft (meaning smooth)
  • hard
Then we cut it open and talked about the inside.
  • orange
  • stringy
  • ooey gooey
  • has seeds in it]
  • smelly

Some brave ones got to help sort the seeds from the pumpkin pulp. Not everyone was so excited about touching the ooey gooey mess.

After removed all the seeds, we toasted them and then of course our favorite part of the process, eat the seeds!
