Pollination is the stage when reproduction takes place. Pollination activities engage students actively in spreading pollen among plants using a bee stick so that they successfully reproduce and develop seed in the next stage. (Alternatives to the bee stick, such as a cotton swab or commercially supplied pollination wand can also be used).

During the pollination stage, activities can link students' use of bee sticks with explorations into the interactions of plants and insects.

Pollination Instructions

Bee sticks can be made from whole bees or just the fuzzy thorax (mid- section).
Use a drop of glue to fix the bee thorax to a toothpick.
Let beesticks dry overnight.
Pollinate with the beesticks by brushing the bee over flowers to pick up and pass around the pollen among different plants. Fast Plants(TM) do not self-pollinate.
