Savanna Ridge Students Learn About Pollination

Students in Mr. Lewis’ class are learning about the role bees and other living and non-living things have in pollination. Using the resource “Mystery Science” they received a real-world lesson on what pollination is and how it happens. To make the concept stick, they created their own model flowers, complete with pollen dusters, pollen, and a “sticky” stigma. Students then created their own “pollinators” out of pipe cleaners. In the lesson, they learned that pollen has to spread from one flower to another to be pollinated. So students worked with a partner to have their bees pollinate each other’s flowers.
