The sunflower was the „star of the day” for the children from the project „School is cool!”, partially financed by United Way Romania. They have found new information about this useful plant, cultivated on large agricultural areas in our country. The interesting part of the activity was the presentation of some natural plant threads, in various stages of development, which helped the children to know the component parts and their role. It was surprising for them to see where the oil is hidden, right in these sunflower seeds. The children understood how much work and how much sunflower seeds we need to get to have on the table the edible oil we all need.
