What is pollination? – a diagram for kids
Pollination is a very important part of the life cycle of plants. Insects, birds, bats and the wind take pollen between flowering plants, which means the plants can make seeds and reproduce (have babies!). The diagram below shows how.

Learning about the life cycle of plants
We hope that adults will find our diagram useful for teaching children how pollination is crucial to life on Earth. Teachers of Key Stage 2 pupils (aged 8-11 years) should find it useful when teaching the basic elements of the life cycle of plants.
