Summertime is the perfect time of year to observe the pollination process in your own backyard, garden, neighborhood, or local park.

Birds, bees, bats, butterflies, moths, beetles, mosquitoes and other insects and animals are all pollinators — even the wind acts as a pollinator. Pollinators transfer the pollen from one flower to another of the same species leading to fertilization that results in fruit and seed production. About 80% of the world’s fruit and vegetable crops require pollination. It is essential for plant reproduction.

To better understand what is taking place during the pollination process, the curriculum at this website offers detailed scientific information and an array of educational activities. When you get to the site, click on the first link under “Curriculum”: Nature’s Partners: A Comprehensive Pollinator Curriculum for Grades 3-6. This curriculum includes:
