In this activity, students use information to annotate a diagram of pollen processing and use this to justify the management practice of using processed pollen on New Zealand kiwifruit orchards.
By the end of this activity, students should be able to:
- annotate a diagram by selecting appropriate information from a description
- use the diagram and annotations to justify the use of a management practice on New Zealand orchards.

Nature of Science
Annotating a diagram engages students in developing their ability to communicate in science and use the information to justify the use of a management practice in the New Zealand horticulture industry. This activity therefore allows students to demonstrate their understanding of science and of a socio-scientific issue related to processing pollen.
