My students loved writing interviews with a pumpkin. They performed them in pairs and small groups at the end of the day. Students pretended what a pumpkin could say if he could talk. They created mini news casts using personification.
For the complete Interview a Pumpkin lesson plans, please visit this post at Artistry of Education. (And if you didn't catch it before Halloween, consider all the pumpkin flavored foods that are available from now through the end of the year.)
