Some time ago I was helping a kid with his math homework, which was in Spanish. We stalled on 'alpiste,' unclear if this particular noun had any implication for understanding the word problem. That was a Spanish word of the day I won't soon forget.

Alpiste: un tipo de semilla pequeña que se alimentan a los pájaros.

I put English below and backwards to compromise letting and not forcing students to try translating.

You both listed your source (fuente) which is also the word for fountain, depending on context. So I used that word in a sentence.
