Pollination is a process by which pollen is moved from flower to flower. Most often, pollen is moved by insects, but the wind and water can also help pollinate flowers. Insects land on flowers not because they are attracted to the pollen, but rather to the sweet smelling nectar inside. The nectar is insects food.
First graders participated in a working model for how pollination works. Using paper bag flowers, their hands as bees, and cheese puffs as nectar, they quickly realized that they were picking up and dropping off "pollen" without even knowing it. When pollen is transferred from flower to flower, there's a good chance that a new seed will develop! And new seeds grow fruit around them
