Hurray for Bees!

Program description

Although they are the smallest animals on the farm, honeybees have one of the most important jobs: pollinating crops. By learning about the life cycle and needs of bees, students also learn how to protect pollinating insects. Students help put a bee hive together and learn how to extract honey.
