  5. Activity Set C: Field Study of Flowers and Pollinators

    24 May 2016 | | Contributor(s):: plantingscience

    Summary: In outdoor field settings, students investigate animal pollinators, most likely insects and hummingbirds. Student inquiry questions will be explored by collecting data on pollinator visits to flowers. Students count the number of pollinator visits to flowers during timed observation...

  6. Activity Set B: Exploring Pollen in the Atmosphere

    24 May 2016 | | Contributor(s):: plantingscience

    Summary: Students explore wind-pollination through investigating pollen in the atmosphere. They construct simple pollen traps and set them outdoors. Using a staining technique to distinguish pollen from other material on microscope slides, students conduct pollen counts from the collected...

  7. Activity Set A: Background for Inquiries Investigating Pollen in Plant Reproduction

    24 May 2016 | | Contributor(s):: plantingscience

    Summary: Students gain background knowledge for inquiry investigations through dissecting flowers and/or cones and observing pollen grains through compound microscopes. In addition, students conduct either a guided or open inquiry investigation by growing pollen tubes. Through these activities,...
