As part of the Daltons Sunflower challenge we started our journey with planting seeds, watching how the plants are growing, measuring the heights of the shoots, and talking about what we are noticing. Some children have replanted their seedlings into bigger pots and are bringing in used plastic bottles to protect the young plants from the wind. Children are learning to be guardians/kaitiaki of the garden, taking ownership of their own plants and watering them each day. We are building an inquiry around the sunflowers, asking questions about the process and thinking about what will happen next.
