Kids usually know that seeds grow into plants, but do they know where the seeds come from?  This Sunflower Life Cycle Lesson helps introduce students to the growth and the development of seeds.

Spring has sprung!  Soon plants and flowers are going to start to sprout. We all know that plants sprout from seeds but do our kids/students know that?

The Lesson

Our Sunflower Life Cycle lesson will introduce your kids to the seed cycle and allow them to create a sunflower of their own.

  • Paper
  • Markers/Crayons
