Yesterday in my classroom, we removed the seeds from a pumpkin left from Halloween. My students enjoyed listening to a book about the life cycle of the pumpkin and then reaching in and pulling free the seeds. The seeds to be toasted in a lesson on kitchen safety. A brought the empty pumpkin home to put in our compost pile and one seed escaped and was in the passenger seat of my car. When I went to pick up my son from play practice, sitting there in the parking lot, I started thinking of that seed. This piece is the result.
