Practice sequencing and learn the sunflower life cycle with a unique, fun game!

Includes playing cards with 8 sequential stages of the sunflower life cycle, also labeled with ordinal numbers to ease confusion.

This is played like a traditional game of "War", except instead of using numbers, student will use the stages of the sunflower life cycle. The furthest stage in the sequence wins the cards.

For example: germinate beats seed/ flower beats sprout.


-For non-readers: print 4 copies of only the picture cards

-For readers: print 2 copies of both the picture and word cards

-Use as a Memory Match game

-Use as a "Go Fish" game by printing two copies of each card

-Use as an independent matching center


-Divide cards evenly among two players.

-Place cards face down in a stack

-Players each turn over one card at the same time

-Player with the word that has the card with the furthest stage in the sunflower life cycle takes both cards and adds them to the bottom of their pile

-In case of tie, each player lays down three cards face down and then turns the third card. Furthest stage wins all the cards.

-Play continues as time allows or one player runs out of cards.

Great partner center!!
