Students learn about the importance of pollinators in our ecosystems and in global food production. Through a series of interactive discussions and activities, students learn what types of animals are and are not pollinators. As a group, we briefly discuss what types of things are harming our pollinators and a few things that we can do at home to help our pollinators. The program ends with a pollinator themed game.
