Kids Can Build a Better World
Tuesday, July 11, 2:30 PM
Our little garden friends need ENERGY, just like you! Pollinators such as bats, bees, ladybugs, birds, butterflies and moths are needed for the reproduction of over 90% of flowering plants and one third of the food we eat. By visiting flowers in search of food (nectar and pollen), these pollinators keep the energy going in the garden and build a better world one plant at a time.
We will learn how to support them as they support us!
We will read The Reason for a Flower by Ruth Heller and play a pollination game to better understand the process. Then the children will take seeds home to grow a plant to assist the pollinators in building a better world.
