Selwyn Kindergarten has joined the Dalton’s Sunflowers in kindergartens programme.
We planted our seeds into the seed raising mix. We are using egg cartons to help propagate the seedlings. Tamariki had lots of fun with this hands on experience, supporting their urge to explore and foster their kaitiakitanga (guardianship) skills, as they develop the sense of ownership and responsibility for their surrounding natural environments.
Throughout this activity we are hoping to explore the lifecycle of sunflowers, discuss what we think is happening with the seeds, what are the needs of growing flora and fauna and many other curious questions along the way. Watch this space!
