Assembling a miniature beehive at the hands-on table
I will set up three learning centers in the classroom. The first is an observation hive with plexiglass windows where students can watch live bees up close making honey and rearing their young. The hive is completely escape-proof. Another center provides an extensive library of books about bees and beekeeping.In a third learning center I present tools, equipment, and a miniature beehive as well as my bee suit and bee costuming for younger children.
There is also a PowerPoint presentation about bees, honey, pollination, and the plight of the vanishing bees followed by a Q&A session.
Available mid-April through June and for a special Rosh Hashanah program in September
