Today during Discovery learning we used our fine motor skills to pull apart some wilted Sunflowers. We rubbed off the tiny flowerettes and found a surprise underneath them.
We used our senses to describe the smell, taste, touch and sight of the Sunflowers and their seeds. Using magnifying glasses we inspected the Sunflower seeds and even saw some little hairs covering them.
Together we brainstormed what we can do next with the Sunflowers and their seeds. We decided that we will dry some out to eat them and plant some in the garden. Anna shared a book with us that taught us how to turn them into Bird feeders. They are now hanging in our learning space to dry out before we make the bird feeders.
We can’t wait to explore further with the sunflowers!
