Today, our Science learning involved exploring the part that flowers play in pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.
We watched a wonderful video by artist Katy Scott of how flowers make new flowers. There were no words which made it all the more special.
The main points were:
- The bees visit the flowers to gather nectar and pollen which they need for food. Some of the pollen gets moved from flower to flower.
- Once the pollen has moved down the stigma into the ovary, the flower has been pollinated. Seed formation begins in the ovary.
We made the different parts from paper and put the structure together in groups.
Here are some pictures from the session.
