Know, Need, Do.

Let's discuss what you observed about the pollinating animals.

This will help us figure out what we know, need to know, and want to do.

Did you see any butterflies, bats, bees, moths, or hummingbirds? If so, what did they have in common? How were they different?  

Many could fly...

They seem to like being around flowers...

They're small...

...they're all pollinators!

Creating a K-N-D will help us map out problems and their solutions. Let's  

identify what we already KNOW,

ask questions about what we NEED and want to understand, and

brainstorm ideas for what we could DO to help.

Questions to Uncover

Think about your observations and personal experiences.

K: What do you already KNOW from your observations, experiences, and background knowledge?

N: What do you NEED to know to be able to effectively help a local pollinator? 

Challenge! See how many questions about pollinators you can come up with. Scientists try to start questions with who, what, when, where, how, or what if. 

D: What ideas do you have for what you could DO to help a local pollinator?
