    Pumpkin idea
    By Sue

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Guess how many seeds are in the pumpkin. As you clean out the pumpkin to carve it, put the pumpkin seeds and pumpkin innards on paper plates. Put the children in groups or as they go to a Station have them separate the seeds from the innards and count them. Add all the responses. Wash off the pumpkin seeds and place on a tray on a windowsill. Allow the seeds to dry (it only takes a few days) and put them in a labeled container. Next spring you can plant the pumpkin seeds as part of a plants unit. I teach Kindergarten and I ask the children when they get to First Grade to bring back pictures of the pumpkins they planted from our classroom seeds. some years children have brought in pumpkins they gre for me to carve the next year.
