All about Plant Pollination: Fruit, Flowers & Seeds. Plant Life for Children[TM]. Schlessinger Science Library. [Videotape].
Flowers are not only pretty, they are also one of the key elements in the process of plant pollination and reproduction that goes from flowers to fruits to seeds! In All About Plant Pollination: Fruit, Flowers & Seeds, young scientists learn about the different parts of a flower through the use of microscopic photography and detailed diagrams. See how a flower becomes pollinated when pollen lands on the stigma of the same type of plant. Learn about the structure of seeds and how they develop inside fruit. Find out how seeds are dispersed and how the process starts all over again when a new plant begins to grow. In a hands-on experiment, kids pollinate a flower themselves and then observe the development of its seeds and fruit. This title correlates to the National Science Education Standards for Life Science - characteristics of organisms, life cycles of organisms and organisms & environments. This title includes a teacher's guide featuring additional information on the topic, vocabulary words, discussion questions, follow-up activities and lists of recommended books and Internet resources.
