Our Flowers and Fertilization lesson plan introduces students to flowers and fertilization or pollination. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively, with a partner, to create a short play in which one student is a bee and one a flower and includes facts about fertilization and pollination, which they then perform in front of the class, strengthening their presentation and public speaking skills. Students are also asked to label the parts of a plant using a word bank in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson material and vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define fertilization and pollination, explain the process of pollination, identify pollinators, and label the parts of a flower.
