Students will learn about pollination and seed dispersal in this second-grade unit. Students will make a model to demonstrate how animals help with seed dispersal. They will also participate in a fun lab on pollination! This resource includes two slide shows (one on pollination and one on seed dispersal), hands-on activities, and follow-up pages. Students will love using STEM skills to make a model of a maple seed pod.
The slide shows are in ppt and the lesson plans and other pages are in pdf. The slide shows are not editable.
This lesson is aligned with:
NGSS 2-LS2-2. Develop a simple model that mimics the function of an animal in dispersing seeds or pollinating plants.
Utah SEEd Standard 2.2.3
Develop and use a model that mimics the function of an animal dispersing seeds or pollinating plants. Examples could include plants that have seeds with hooks or barbs that attach themselves to animal fur, feathers, or human clothing, or dispersal through the wind, or consumption of fruit and the disposal of the pits or seeds. (LS2.A)
Students will love all the fun activities in this great unit on seed dispersal and pollination for second-grade science.
