Bee on flower pollinators resource

Through a case study approach, this lesson introduces the importance of bumble bees and other pollinators. Students will examine population surveys and use the scientific method to discuss possible causes for the decline of  pollinators. Students will then determine which strategies are most successful in attracting and supporting bumble bee populations. Developed by National Ag in the Classroom, this grade 9-12 resource is linked to curriculum outcomes.
