Students grow their knowledge of sunflowers through science and art
In this lesson, students grow both sunflowers and their knowledge of sunflowers in science and art. After exploring the work of Van Gogh and other artists using sunflowers as their subject, students create their own sunflower-based artwork.
Additionally, they observe and record the growth of a sunflower, journaling its growth with their personal life experiences during that same time period. They reflect on this growth experience through creative writing.
