    I just finished my pumpkin unit and sprouted pumpkin seeds in sandwich size zip-locs. Simply toss in two cotton balls, moisten them, and drop in several seeds. I put the bags in a shoebox sized plastic bin and set in on top of my computer monitor which kept it just the right temp. In a few days we had pumpkin seedlings. We kept journals and drew pictures of their growth. I did have to explain to my K's that they couldn't plant them outside right now, since it was fall. They really enjoyed doing the project, though. I featured the pumpkin seeds in a patterning lesson and we also did seed mosiac pumpkins using beans and dried yellow peas.
