Jessie Rack: Science will Save the World - All About Pollination

Get ready to learn about the birds and the bees! That’s the story of pollination – when flowers use animals to help them get their pollen from place to place so they can make seeds.

This episode builds off of the flower anatomy lesson (don’t worry – I review all the parts!) and demonstrates the pollination process in a memorable way: I turn my head into a flower.

What pollinators have you seen near you? Take a walk outside, see what’s blooming, and see what animals you can spot in and around the flowers! Some common pollinators include bees, butterflies, moths, beetles, hummingbirds, bats, and even ants!
