Spectacular Sunflowers
McNeece, Molly
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v109 n9 p34-35 May-Jun 2010
In this article, the author illustrates how she shares her love of sunflowers with her kindergarten and first-grade students through an interesting art lesson. Sunflowers are easy to grow, so the author started the lesson four months earlier with inexpensive seed packets. She planted many varieties, but she most likes the colors of the Mexican sunflower and the dramatic height of the Mammoth sunflower. Using sunflowers as a life study, she had her students touch and sketch the plants cut from her garden. She had her students draw and paint sunflower on the paper and taught them how to add patterns and textures. (Contains 1 online resource.)
