Launch/Practice Stage for Research Lab:

 

Dear Scientists,

Everyday during the research lab you will spend at least 10 minutes using the links below to research and share information with your group about pollinators.   Then you will check-in with a teacher to discuss your findings before you use the materials box to work on your pollination demonstration.

Extend Stage  

Why are some insects better pollinators than others?

I can research to figure out why some animals are better pollinators than others.

I can explain why pollen sticks to honey bees but not all other insects.

I can collaborate with a group to record and discuss research.

9) Other Insects pollinators
