This link provides a list of six games that could be played to demonstrate pollination and other biological content.  The Pollination Game on page 3 could be used to address this GLE.  There is a basic materials list that is needed for the game. The game would require a large indoor/outdoor area to play. The materials required are basic and most schools will have these available. If not, they are fairly inexpensive materials. This could be used as an introduction to the GLE or a culminating activity. What is pollination? Why is it necessary? Explore the diverse plant life of Kew and observe various pollinators at work (selection of plants will depend on the season and weather).Through games, role play and inquiry based learning students will investigate how and why plants need to attract pollinators and what happens when they do.
