Flower Power

Teach students about the power of flowers! In this kit, drama and games are used to show the connection between pollinators, plants, and people in our ecosystem. Full of bright colours and costumes and composed of several smaller activities, it is especially engaging for younger students with shorter attention spans.

  • Please bring your own pens/pencils, and printed-out worksheets.
  • It is recommended that you spend an hour or so in class introducing students to the concepts of food chains, plant life-cycles, flower parts and pollination to prime them for this kit.
  • Good classroom follow-up activities to cement learning could include making insect hotels, going on a pollinator hunt, designing/constructing their own flowers and matching pollinators, or the crossword worksheet provided if it is not completed on site.
