Pollination Partners

(1 review)


This resource details a number of ways plants can be pollinated, and what physical attributes facilitate pollination.
Students dissect plants and identify parts of each flower, then try to determine which animal pollinates it (if any).

This lesson takes about 3-5 hours to complete and is mainly focused on native Oregon species.

    This lesson explores the reason for pollen and pollination — plant reproduction. It’s a concept that younger students often miss.
    The emphasis on flower dissection is good, as well as the flower/pollinator matching exercise. Having students build their own flowers, based on a description, is a nice way to have them use what they learned from the flower dissection in a new context. There are several extension activities listed as well. It could benefit from a rewrite, since the text is quite dense and we had to read it a couple of times to follow the lesson.
    A great candidate for someone to adapt for their region.
