Gourds are Mother Nature’s Attribute Blocks.

Warty or not. Pear-shaped, long, or compact. With stems or without. Multi-colored or solid. So many attributes available in so many combinations.

Gourds are a natural setting for Which One Doesn’t Belong? Go swing a deal with a farmer at your local market, bring a couple dozen to school, and have your students build their own Which Gourd Doesn’t Belong? sets.
