Sixth graders have been learning about pollination. They listened to a presentation by a special USDA representative about what pollination is and why it is so important.

Students learned how pollinators are an essential link in agriculture. Animal pollinators, especially bees, are critical for producing more than one-third of U.S. food products. In addition to bees, other pollinators, including butterflies and moths, beetles, flies, wasps, birds, and bats are necessary for pollinating more than 80% of plants in nature.

In addition to what the class learned in the presentation, they have gone on to build their own 3D models of pollinators based on what traits an efficient pollinator needs.
