The curtain rises. The children are in the class listening to what Professor Sergio tells them.
Sergio: Guys, as you know, next week we are going to celebrate the pumpkin contest so we have to organize ourselves well. Like last year, it's about decorating two pumpkins in teams. The best ones from the whole school will win a prize.
Carlota: (with a happy face) What fun! We sure win.
Sergio: Sure, but for this we have to do it right. I have thought that we can make two teams, each one will decorate a pumpkin and if one of the two finishes before the other it will help them to finish their pumpkin.
Charles: And how do we divide the teams?
Mayte: We can do it as we are seated at tables.
Sergio: I think it's a good idea. (Points to the tables) You will be the red team and you will be the blue team, is that okay?
Everyone: Yes! Great!
Lorraine: Well tomorrow we bring the pumpkins to class and we start decorating them.
Sofia: Okay, we're going to have a great time!
Bell rings. The children leave the class. The curtain closes.
The curtain rises. The children are back in class.

Gael: Me too, but if I tell you the truth, I don't think we'll win, the ones from the class next door are very good ...
Sergio: (turns to students) Guys, let's go to the gym. There are two very large pumpkins waiting for you to decorate them.
Daniela: (raises hand to speak) Are there stickers and glitter too?
Sergio: Yes, there is everything for you to let your imagination fly.
(The students leave the classroom and enter the gym, where the pumpkins are)
Diego: They are very big!
Maribel: I think we can start by cleaning them. We are the red team, do you think we split again? Some of us clean the pumpkins and others are preparing things to decorate.
Saula: Sounds good to me, I ask myself to prepare the stickers that I really like.
(The children get to work with the pumpkins. At the same time, the bell rings)
Sergio: It's time to go to recess and then to eat, leave everything as it is and continue on your way back.
Adrien: Luckily, I'm hungry ... (puts his hand to his belly)

Violet: (Keep reading the note) There are three of them and they always sleep backwards.
Thomas: How weird!
They go around the gym looking for clues.
Ishmael: (with a happy face) I think I've found the answer. (Points to a poster with three sleeping bats drawn)
