Reproduction and Life Cycles - Part 2
Aimed at primary level, this resource looks at pollination, fertilisation, fruit formation and seed dispersal. It includes activities in which children observe the different types of fruits and their means of dispersal and develop an understanding of their importance in the life cycle of a plant.
Activities in this resource provide a natural progression from Part 1, which introduced children to the basic parts of a flower and their functions. They also offer opportunities for the development of skills in investigative work, with children learning how to devise tables, record and represent results.
Produced by Science and Plants for Schools (SAPS) it is one of a series of booklets written to support plant science in the Primary Curriculum.
