Using a giant flower model, puppets, a bee hive, and real fruits and vegetables, this presentation teaches the anatomy of a plant, what plants need to grow, and the importance of pollination to the plant kingdom and especially the foods we eat.

Learn where the food you eat every day comes from, and why plants are so essential for life!
