This week we have been talking about pumpkins, making predictions about what will be inside, and then opening them up and inspecting them. Today we opened a second pumpkin in our backyard.
Mage: Do you remember when we opened the first pumpkin? What did we find inside that pumpkin?
Isaac: We saw seeds.
Mage: And what do you think will be inside of this pumpkin?
Isaac: It will have more seeds in it.
Mage: I’m looking inside the first pumpkin. What color are the insides? (Holds pumpkin out toward children)
Isaac: It’s yellow.
Mage: Yellow. And what color do you think this new pumpkin will be inside?
Mage: Your prediction is that the inside will be orange and have seeds. Let’s find out what’s inside!
