Instructions: Read the poem below. Did you know that the sunflower seeds we eat come from the sunflower plant? Have you ever eaten them?

Look at the lesson picture, which shows a vase of sunflowers. Notice their 'clear, bright faces', 'big green leaves', and 'big, strong stems.'

Use crayons, colored pencils, pastels, or markers to draw a yellow and brown sunflower, including its big green leaves and strong stem.

In yellow and brown,

I have come to town.

Like a soldier I stand,

With head high and grand.

Find one like me,

Make a picture true.

Show a clear, bright face.

Show the big green leaves.

Show the big, strong stem,

So straight and tall.
