How TALL do Sunflowers Grow?

Cynthia Pederson

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!
