A Toast to Pollinators!
Spring is here in our Blooming Classroom in Watsonville, and these students from Amesti Elementary School learned about the importance of pollinators to plants and the environment. Here, they celebrate the vital role that bees, butterflies and other animals play in creating delicious, healthy foods by sharing in a pollinator-themed fresh fruit and veggie smoothie! Have you thanked a pollinator for your meal lately?
If you're hungry to know more about how we teach children about pollinators, check out our free "Garden Pollinators" third grade lessons booklet. It's one of four Garden Science Exploration Units for educators that are available free on our web site.
