Categories: Kits , Spanish , Animals

Bees are some of the most important pollinators for our plants and crops. They are responsible for pollinating many crops that we enjoy such as apples, oranges, carrots, broccoli and over 100 other crops! In this lesson students explore concepts such as pollination and cross pollination between plants through a fun simulation.
