We were busy bees today! We started by reading this book by Melvin Berger.
Then we read this WONDERFUL book that I found at Barnes and Noble (my favorite place in the whole, wide, world!!!) If you do not own this book and you will be talking about bees you HAVE to go get it....NOW! It was soooo informative! It talks about how the bees that stay in the hive have to beg for nectar from the forager bees. They do this by tapping their antennae on that of the forager bees...that is how they beg. So I had the kids turn to a partner and model this! They had sooo much fun with this book....it was GREAT!
We made a chart with all of or new found info!
Then we made a bee....of course!
We compared bees with ants.
This is how our mural outside of our classroom is taking shape! I just left my old pecan tree from our Texas unit and a few bluebonnets!
Have a great weekend!
