In this video, the students will learn about flowering plants, seed formation process and significance of honeybees in pollination. What do fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds have in common? They all grow from seeds. Seeds are produced when a pollen travels from one flower to another and fertilizes it. Honey bees play the most part in transport of these pollens. When a honey bee collects nectar, some pollens get stuck on its legs. As it moves from one flower to another, the pollens may rub off and fertilize the flower. Farmers know the importance of these hidden heroes and therefore, take initiative such as reserving bees to deal with potential bee shortages.
This video also features an interview with Bret Adee, owner of Adee Honey Farms.
