How TALL do Sunflowers Grow?

Cynthia Pederson [ view artist bio ]


How tall do sunflowers grow on the Great Plains?  Young students will explore several kinds of tall tales so prevalent during pioneer times.  They will each create an accordion-style book to use to tell a tall tale.  This tale reiterates the concept of size comparisons (tall, taller, and tallest) in a fun and sunny way.  See your students blossom right before your eyes!
