Besides the fact they are AMAZING to watch grow, they provided many opportunities within our homeschooling activities.
We planted two different varieties of sunflowers and discussed comparison. What is different and what is alike?
We sorted according to seed sizes and and colors (some black and some varigated.)
We measured diameter.
When all the seeds where removed we used what was left as a stamper....painting it and pressing on paper. Even enjoyed some art time!
We tasted! We ate them before baking and after.
The kids can't wait for next years crop.
