Why learn about sunflowers?
Learning about sunflowers can teach children about the cycle of life. From seed to bloom to harvest, kids can learn how sunflowers grow and change throughout the seasons. They can even get their hands dirty by planting seeds and watching them sprout into tall, vibrant plants.
Another benefit of studying sunflowers is their unique biology. Sunflowers are one of the few plants that exhibit heliotropism, meaning they turn their faces towards the sun as it moves across the sky. Children can learn about this fascinating behavior and explore the science behind it.
Sunflowers offer a great opportunity for creativity. Kids can create art projects inspired by sunflowers, write poetry or stories featuring these beautiful blooms, or even cook with sunflower seeds.
We love planting our own sunflower seeds in the garden to watch them grow from seeds.
You’ll have a ton of fun adding sunflowers to your plant or botany lessons.
