Drought – Tolerant Trees!

This article appeared on the Straits Times on 2nd Dec 2016 [Link].  Very suitable for Primary School science especially on adaptation. Some question to ask:

(1) Why does growing more flowers reduce water loss?

(2) How does these adaptation mentioned in the article help the plant ?

Some questions that could set the students thinking:

(1) Why are pollinators important?

(2) How does the ways proposed help to save the pollinators?
