Busy as Bees

It all came together just BEE-utifully.  We watched Reading Rainbow’s The Life Cycle of the Honeybee and gained information from a media source.  While creating our bees from construction paper, screen mesh, pipe cleaners, and googly eyes, we discussed all of the facts we had learned.  Even I learned some new facts about robber bees!  Each child created a honeycomb hexagon that had at least one fact, an illustration, and a yellow background.   Everyone was excited to make a hive, but I wasn’t really sure how to make it 3-D.  The pieces were cut, glued, and folded on all edges to make the shape.  Can you believe how well it turned out!?  To make it a little more authentic, we found some branches from the playground and hung it at the check-in station.  I can’t wait to see it with all the bees swarming around the hive.
