Pollen, Lungs, Asthma and Allergies

Produced by Science & Plants for Schools (SAPS), this resource helps students to put hayfever and asthma into the wider contexts of both plant and human biology.

Students look in detail at how plants use pollen to reproduce, including growing pollen tubes and investigating the pollen in honey. They then think about how we breathe and model how our lungs work. The resource concludes by putting the two topics together, encouraging students to think in more detail about allergies and hayfever.

The materials include teachers' notes, technical guidance and student worksheets.
