Teaching your children all about sunflowers, then do not miss grabbing our life cycle of a sunflower activity packet.
These sunflower life cycle printables are chalked full of all kinds of sunflower activities for kids of all ages.
I love the idea of taking something pretty and fun, like a sunflower, and learning more in-depth about them. Making it so much fun for kids as well as educational.
Sunflowers and Fall
There is something so incredible about enjoying the large flower heads of a beautiful sunflower in late Summer and Fall. In our town, we even have a sunflower maze similar to a corn maze around Halloween time.
The beautiful colors of varieties of sunflower plants can be as colorful as Fall leaves. They are what fairy tales are made of.
Parts of a Sunflower
Learning the sunflower life cycle is a great way for kids to learn to grow their own sunflowers from small seeds to sprouts to mature strong plants. It is also to learn about the parts of the mature plant and how those parts then create the seeds to start it all over again and create food sources.
These lessons are great to bring out during the Spring months as well. This is when children can learn to plant their sunflower seeds and watch them grow. They will see them form roots and understand the benefits of watering and the bract of the flower.
We highly encourage teaching children about gardening and the love of gardening. Spring is a wonderful time to watch as seeds turn into seedlings and then into the ground. There is nothing better than watching your children learn to love gardening and the growth of beautiful flowers and veggies.
Sunflower Life Cycle Worksheets
Learning the life cycle of the sunflower plant is educational. Included in our sunflower printables are other learning activities and sunflower worksheets to aid in the learning process of all about sunflowers.
Included in the whole packet are diagrams for the parts of a plant, a word search full of vocabulary words, a sunflower sequencing strip, as wells a journal for growing your own sunflower.
There is learning about seed development and their hard seed coat, to the flower bud and tall plants of early Fall. Learning all about the life cycle of a sunflower plant has never been so easy and fun!
