In Preschool we are learning all about honey bees! Students explored our preschool garden looking at bees with our magnifying glasses.
Here are some preschool quotes about bees;
- “I know all about bees! They build a hive all by themselves. They build it around and leave a door and put the wax in. They can close and open the doors.”
- “They get the nectar from flowers.”
- “They tuck up the honey.”
- “I have seen bees, they were chasing me!”
- “Bees have straws that can drink the nectar.”
- “I’ve seen bees at our house in our trees to get the pollen.”
- “Bees sip nectar from flowers and take it back to their hive. They spit it into the honeycomb.”
- “Hornets sting.”
- “We need bees living in hives. They pollinate the flowers that make your house pretty.”
- “They use nectar to make honey. I put honey on bread.”
- “Something once bit me.”
In getting a closer look at bees in our garden we were then able to make our own in class. We painted a balloon to make the body of the bee and used scissors to cut out wings for our bees. Come check out our bees outside the preschool classroom!
