Week 2

Topic wc 8.6.20

 

Part Two: Why are bees so important?

As we learnt last week, much of our wildlife and crops rely on bees to pollinate plants.

But, how does this happen?

Read these information cards again to yourself or with a grown up.

TASK 1

Try and put these in order 1 -8.

 

The bee carries pollen with it to another flower on another plant.

 

As the bee collects nectar from the flower, it brushes against the flower.

 

Pollen sticks to the bee’s hairy body.

 

Fertilisation takes place and a new seed develops.

 

While the bee gathers nectar some pollen from the first plant is rubbed onto the new plant.

 

Brightly coloured petals and the scent of the flower attract bees looking for nectar and pollen.

 

Plants which use insects to transfer pollen usually have large petals which smell and are brightly coloured.

 

Pollen from the first flower enters the next flower.

TASK 2

Watch this very funny video about pollination:

TASK 3

Did you order correctly?

Were there any left over?

Where do you think that they go?
