Pollinators And The Great Sunflower Project

(1 review)


This curriculum spans a year’s worth of lessons and activities, all designed to educate students about pollinators. Students learn the physiology and ecology of plants and their pollinators, alongside identification and citizen science skills. Real data sets from research are included, and students are encouraged to generate their own. The curriculum guides students from building science skills into contributing to citizen science, and ultimately, to conducting independent investigations.

Teachers may adapt the lessons to a variety of grade levels.

    This is a full curriculum carefully aligned to NGSS standards, and developing all the STEM practices in a steady, stepwise way over an entire year of lessons (15 to 21 class periods). There are rubrics, sample student responses, and more! It invites students to spend time observing and documenting the natural world around them. Many of the exercises could also be adapted for use individually; and there is a condensed schedule for 4-8 class periods. Very well done!
