Get the buzz about how bees pollinate flowers and how we can help them out.
Your class will be buzzing about how bees pollinate flowers and use dance moves to let their bee friends know where they can find their next meal.
The activities engage students in sharing ideas and solutions, having fun learning and moving, and exploring and caring for bees through creative thinking and making.
The activities also connect to a variety of grade-specific curricular competencies and content in a variety of subjects including Physical and Health Education, Science, Arts Education and Social Studies.
We need to protect bees, they are essential to pollination and many other species depend on bees for survival. Threats to bee species include use of pesticides, monocultures and habitat loss, pests and diseases.
Bees, other pollinators, can benefit from wildflowers under power lines. Pollinators – especially bees – are an integral part of a healthy ecosystem and an invaluable asset to food production.
One of the ways to help support the work of these pollinators is to use the open spaces in power line corridors to create pollinator-friendly habitat.
Young people can protect and care for our environment. We can empower them by sharing fun and amazing facts about bees, playing amusing bee games and inspiring them to find ways to help the bees like planting flowers and avoiding pesticides to keep bees happy and healthy.
Go outside and explore your surroundings and talk about the connection to nature and caring for the environment.
Learn about food chains and interconnectedness with a fun, interactive game of tag.
