Animals Help Plants Pollinate
Rosen REAL Readers: STEM and STEAM Collection
Animals such as bees, butterflies, moths, and flies help plants to pollinate. This transfer of pollen by animals is accidental. Mostly, these animals are just passing by the plant, or are eating, and pick up the pollen on their feathers, fur, or wings, and transfer the pollen to another plant. Through the concepts discussed here, help your readers understand this important, but happenstance, part of pollination. This nonfiction book is paired with the fiction book, The Mystery Plant, for connecting across texts and comprehension through connection strategies.
