Another great story that we read as a class was about Zinnia. We follow her through the many stages of planning, planting and harvesting a flower garden. The students were so excited to plant their own seeds to grow. We planted the same seeds that grew in the story: zinnia, sweet pea, sunflowers and cosmos. Hopefully in about 2 weeks we will have some little green buds coming up through our soil.
I recommend these books and the following materials if you want to grow a flower garden like ours.
