I was observed by my content adviser from the University for this lesson. We made two pumpkins: a flat one and a puffy one. For the puffy one, we took a brown paper bag and stuffed it so that it had some shape. Then I showed them that red and yellow mixed together makes orange. This was literally the most mind-blowing thing they had probably ever seen. They painted their puffy pumpkin orange. Next they took a brown slick-stick and drew lines on their pumpkins. Lastly, they used green contact paper to wrap around the top of their stem. For the flat pumpkin, they painted a large oval/circle onto their papers. Then we used a slick-stick to draw lines onto their pumpkins. Then we added a small brown rectangle for the stem. Lastly, I showed them how to cut out spirals that they could glue to their pumpkin for a vine.
