Hello grade 1/2's from the seagrass beds of Moreton Bay...

Your challenge today is to think of a science question to ask me while I am away.... look at our schools blog page by clicking on the link below

Port Fairy Environmental Science Blog - Ask me a question.

Once you have finished the on the blog you can help create a new seagrass story for me... Who is that pollinating the seagrass?

If seagrass is a flowering plant... and plants have flowers.... and flowers need to be pollenated.  We know that seagrass is pollenated by the current. But what happens if its not... What other marine creature could pollinate the seagrass?

Who is pollinating the seagrass?.... is it the leafy sea dragon? is it the fish? is it the tiny shrimp? Is it the sea snails? Is it the garfish? Is it the sea slug or is it a dumpling squid...

Activity:  On a blank piece of paper write your storyline and draw the secret seagrass pollenator... describe how they pollinate the seagrass flower... a single tiny flower... is it by rubbing their noses, touching thier fins, sliding up the stalk or buzzing around creating a current...or some new imaginative way of spreading the pollen around...

Tools: You can use the rockpool guides as a help with pictures and idea's (found at the front of the room) and the Victorian Fieldguide App on the ipads.
