I want to make a topic out of the sunflowers we are growing but am having some trouble with linking it. So far I've got...

Collage sunflowers with tissue paper and sunflower seeds
sunflowers made from handprints
looking at 'Sunflowers' by Van Gogh
recognising yellow/brown

Looking at non-fiction books about growing sunflowers

Printed sunflowers with numerals on for the garden
Measuring our sunflowers - standard and non-standard measurements
Sequencing the life cycle
Whose sunflower is the tallest/shortest? Has the most petals? etc
Counting out 2 seeds from the packet to plant

where would you put planting seeds?
any ideas for links to PSED, PD and KUW?

Planting would be with KUW - children are learning about change and how things grow.

PSED will be covered by thinking about how to look after the seeds and what they need to survive. Compare with what we need.

PD is digging, stretching, dancing to flower songs.

Hth :D
