Bees can be a bit scary to little kids, especially when working around them in the garden. It helps to know why they are important and what to do if they make you feel uncomfortable. In this lesson TK and Kindergarten learned all about bees!
A pretend bee and hive helped me demonstrate what to do if a bee is buzzing around you and also helped visualize how bees travel from flower to flower collecting nectar and pollen which they take back to the hive.
Afterwards, we pretended to be bees and collected “nectar” which we sipped up into our honey stomachs, carried it all the way to the hive and placed in the honey comb.
