Reflection: Lesson Planning What is Pollination - Section 3: Making a Model of a Flower


It is important to remember that second graders are 7 and 8 years old. They are not adults and sometimes they just need to have fun. That is not to say that learning is not fun, but we need to remember that young children learn through play and sometimes we need to build play into our lessons. 

In this lesson the students loved making the flowers. They also laughed as they made the bees fly from the pollen (the glitter on the paper that I told them was a field of flowers and next time I would decorate a piece of paper with drawings of flowers to make that even more real), to the other flowers. 

They thought the bees were great puppets and enjoyed making them fly around their tables. They had a hands on and fun experience with how the bees pollinate the flowers.
