This is a handout I created to go along with a pumpkin themed science activity. The only additional item needed is an actual pumpkin. When I have done this activity with my class, I usually bring up my students in small groups so each student gets the opportunity to explore the pumpkin. I also have included a taste testing portion (e.g. pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pie, pumpkin seeds), but my school has a new wellness policy that doesn't allow for this anymore. You could always add a tasting portion if you'd like!
