The buzz about bees!
Maine Memorial was buzzing with all things bees during this AG in the Classroom lesson.
The topic was bees and honey. Students in EK to first grade learned what beekeepers do, and saw what they wear to protect themselves and the tools they use when tending to hives.
The student saw a hive and honeycomb. They learned about the duties of the bees that live in the hive and AG in the Classroom educator Ms. Atwood brought along some preserved bees so that the students could see them up close.
Of course the students learned that bees produce honey and they got to smell and taste some! YUM!
