Learning about Pollination

Year 3 wanted to know how seeds were made. We watched some close-up videos of bees and discovered they had something to do with the pollen and the ‘sticky stigma’. So we recreated this with our own model of a flower and used tumeric and ground nutmeg to represent different pollens. Using a pipe cleaner ‘bee’ we then made our bees fly into our flowers for a drink before flying to another plant.

Year 3, over to you…

How does the bee help the flowers to pollinate? Why does this happen? What is the bee doing in the flower?


  1. The bee helps the flower to pollinate by moving the pollen one flower too another by their feet because there are drinking the flower’s nectar.
