[ póllə nàyt ]
- transfer pollen and fertilize plant: to transfer pollen grains from the male structure of a plant anther to the female structure of a plant stigma and fertilize it
Draw a bee on cardstock or find one to print from online and be sure to draw two bumps below the bee where you can cut out finger holes. Draw and cut out two or more flowers (one per kid).
Place a cheesy cheeto in the center of a flower that you've drawn and cut out. Let your little be fingers land on a cheeto flower center and then land on other flowers. You'll see how the "pollen" gets transfered from flower to flower.
