Pumpkins in Honalee

Today in Honalee we discussed the outside and inside of a pumpkin.  Everyone had a chance to stick their hands in and play with the "guts".  The students noticed that there were 100's of seeds and the inside was slimy.  We then baked our own pumpkin seeds to have as a healthy snack.  Ask your child what they thought about our pumpkin investigation.  Pictures will be posted soon!
