This time of year the Sunflowers are in bloom and they are a perfect subject of study for preschoolers! Their scale and size makes them easy for the kids to see all of their parts and colors. And of course, they are just so cheerful!
Students planted some Sunflower seeds in the Spring around the preschool and parish grounds. We have snipped a few of them to bring inside and placed in vases. The kids can look at them up close and do observational drawing, examine with magnifying glasses, pick the seeds out with tweezers and more!
Our Seedlings class has been working on drawing and painting these beautiful buds and their creations will soon be displayed in the classroom.
