Plant reproduction is when a plant reproduces by forming seeds or spores. Pollination is when pollen is carried from the male part of a flower to the female part of another flower, usually by insects or the wind. The stamen is the male part of the flower. It carries the pollen. The stigma is the sticky tip of the female part of the flower. Pollen grains land on and stick to the stigma during pollination. Today the children dissected a flower to see if they could identify the different parts and to distinguish between the male and female parts. They identified the sepal, petal, style, filament, anther, ovary, ovules and stem.
