Pollination

 

A food chain is essential for all our planet's species. Remove take out one link of the food chain and...catastrophe awaits!

Plants/vegetation are a very important link within the food chain. Nature is very clever and ensures that there is plenty of plants each year. To enable plants to grow, seed dispersal is vital-we studied this aspect last week-this week we are going to explore how plants are pollinated.

Let's have a look at this Powerpoint.

What do you understand by pollination? How do you think pollination happens?

 

In your book, write the male and female parts of a flower.

 

In class in previous years, we have used a flower head, ask before you pick, it could be a wildflower, and found the reproductive parts of the flower and stuck them on  our page and labelled them.

VERY IMPORTANT: wash your hands after and do not touch your face whilst handling the parts of the flower. Be wary if you have allergies (hayfever).

Here are some worksheets for you.
