This unit consists of two parts: a book companion with literacy activities for The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle and a sunflower life cycle science pack. The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle is a great book to teach Kindergarten and First Grade students about the life cycle of a sunflower!


Sunflower Life Cycle Pack:

1. Sequencing Activity: Pocket Chart Picture Sort

Students sequence the life cycle of a sunflower by sorting the cards in order.

2. Sequencing Activity: Cut & Paste

Students follow up with a cut and paste page showing the sunflower’s life cycle.

3. Information Cards

Students will learn about how tiny seeds grow and change to become plants.

4. Student Booklets

Students will use the information they’ve learned to fill in their booklets. Simple to differentiate! Have students write, draw, both write AND draw, OR cut & paste the life cycle stages in the flip books.
