Agents of Pollination

This Agents of Pollination lesson plan also includes:

Honeybees perform more pollination than any other insect, but pollination can occur by the wind, self-pollination, or cross-pollination. The fourth lesson in a 10-part series encourages scholars to investigate the adaptation of various types of flowers for the different types of pollination. They read about the adaptations, handle and observe flowers, and classify them by pollination type.
