  • 1. MeredithWojcik June 2013 POLLINATORS AND THEIR PLANTS In order for plants to make seeds that become future plants, the pollen (yellow, dusty powder) of male flower parts (called anthers) must reach the female part of another flower (called stigmas or pistils). When this happens, a seed is created. Pollinators play an important role because they are responsible for transferring the pollen from the anthers to the stigmas. POLLINATOR SCAVENGER HUNT Find as many of the plants as you can below and check off what pollinators you see on them.

  • 2. MeredithWojcik June 2013 COLOR Every flower that depends on pollinators is colored so that it attracts the right pollinators. Each type of pollinator has a color they prefer, justlike you probably do. Flies are attracted to brown or maroon colors, hummingbirds likered, orange, and magenta, butterflies are drawn to red, orange, yellow, pink, and blue flowers, and bees prefer yellow, blue, and purpleflowers. Draw a flower in the box and color it. Write what type of pollinator it would attract. ____________________ POLLINATOR SCRAMBLE Unscramble these words related to pollination!
