It's National Pollinator Week, 6.21-27
The National Pollinator Week kit provides great resources about pollinators and for NPW events. The "For Kids" section includes a pollinator crossword puzzle, details about building a bee condo and a list of five things that children can do to help pollinators.
The "Fast Facts" section offers a page for educators and students, and it provides a link to a curriculum for grades 3-6 from North American Pollinator Protection Campaign. The curriculum includes six modules and points out that more than 150 food crops in the U.S. depend on pollinators, including apples, almonds, blueberries, cranberries, melons, pears and plums.
North American Pollinator Protection Campaign offers more details on its website, including information from a 2006 study that described the decline of pollinator populations, including hummingbirds.
