I brought in some sunflowers from my garden, and we "dissected" them. Some of your kiddos may have brought a bag of sunflower seeds home. I told them that they could look up recipes for roasting the seeds (only with parent permission) or save them to plant in the spring. They can grow to be about 10 feet tall!
