Nature Study- Sunflowers

We have been trying to get our sunflower study finished up while they are still blooming. The kids have really enjoyed this one! We saw lots of butterflies all over the flowers, and talked about how most of the flowers have quit blooming so they have to eat where ever they can.

We looked at wild sunflowers, and then we found a flower head that had grown from birdseed, and brought it inside to look at. We saw the amazing difference between wild sunflower seeds and domesticated seeds. This was also a good chance to talk about annuals and perennials and seed dispersal again.
