We talked about how this is a cross section of a pumpkin and what lives inside the pumpkin. The kids were surprised to learn that a pumpkin had a brain just like they do!
We then glued their version into their science notebooks:
This week, we will crack the pumpkin open (the one I bought!) and compare the pictures (and some other fun things!)
