Parents and teachers collaborated on introducing pumpkins to the children. Through their exploration of the pumpkins they learned new vocabulary words and attributes of a pumpkin. They learned that the pumpkin was round and that it can roll. Leonardo rolled the pumpkin around to test this theory. Roos uttered sounds to indicate that she wanted the pumpkin. The teacher rolled the pumpkin to her. Roos discovered that the pumpkin had a hole. She pointed to the hole and looked inside. This led to an exploration of what is inside the pumpkin.
