Today’s three words to discuss were Flowers, Bees and Seeds. Together, we learned how how these three topics relate. Holding up a sunflower that had grown in their garden, I asked the kids at Sullivan Prek to identify what I was holding. “A flower!” many students shouted. We labeled the color and even learned the name, “Sunflower.” We talked about a few of a flower’s purpose in the garden: to look pretty, to attract bees and to make seeds for next year. I demonstrated how a bee pollinates and flower (as it buzzes to a flower to collect nectar for honey, it rubs against the outside of the flower and gets yellow pollen stuck on its body … it takes this pollen to different flower). Finally, we discussed ways not to be scared of bees.
