The Sunflower Story
I found a mini the sunflower story unit from TopClass44 that I used some parts from and then modified a few ideas to fit in line with what I wanted to do for a spring unit.
What the Story is About:
“The Sunflower Story by Maria Eales.” It is a simple story about a bird that drops a sunflower seed and then the person that finds the seed, plants it. The story goes through everything the seed needs to grow and the parts of the plant.
Thought Provoking Questions:
After you read the page to ask the thought-provoking question for the children to answer. Example of the first question: Where do you think the bird got the seed from before he dropped it in my garden?
Labeling the Parts of a Flower:
This above pattern was a little advanced for my preschool children. I modified the printable. Download the Sunflower Handwriting Parts of a Flower Printable.
The unit has a printable sheet to build a sunflower.
