The Junior Kindergarteners have been studying sunflowers in real life as well as Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers. They have even been doing taste testing of sunflower seeds! (the roasted and salted kind were a much bigger hit than raw seeds…) In Art, they drew a vase with sunflowers from observation and colored it with chalk pastels. They have also been coming in small groups to create a sunflower using 100 real seeds. And soon, they will create their own 3D plaster sunflower…a great way to wind down the school year!
