New lesson plan about wind and insect pollinated flowers from the National Botanic Garden of Belgium.

A new lesson plan to get children out of the classroom and thinking about pollination and biodiversity is now available online.

 ‘Can you see the difference between wind pollinated and insect pollinated flowers?’
is a lesson that will get young people exercising their oral communication skills and discussing flower adaptations associated with pollination by wind and insects.

Young people work together to learn to recognise flowers and their constituent parts and which adaptations are associated with the different methods of pollination.

To complete the lesson young people must discuss their hypotheses and present their results to each other. In this way they will not only gain scientific knowledge but practice practical skills simultaneously.

You can also down load this lesson plan and others from the resources section of the INQUIRE website.
