During our preschool theme week on spring flowers and learning about how flowers and plants grow, we invited the owner of the local flower shop to visit preschool. The students love when special guests come to visit preschool and talk about what they have been learning during the week.
She talked about what flowers and plants need in order to grow and how they start out as seeds. We planted bean plants and watched them grow tall. We have grass seeds growing in cups, too.
She talked about where she gets her many varieties of flowers. The preschool students were amazed that many of her flowers come to her shop by traveling across the country on an airplane. They loved touching and smelling the flowers and were excited to take a real Carnation flower home.
