Buzzing about Bees!

We learned all about bees last week and I came up with this bee and beehive project for the kids to make.  I am doing an Insect Unit for Open House, and I am decorating the windows with this project.  If you are learning about bees, this would be great for them to brainstorm using the "tree map" and then write about it on the writing paper.  This is a great bee craft for primary!  Visit my TPT Store to purchase it!

The mini unit on bees includes: 
-template for the bee and beehive
-writing paper
-bee labeling sheet
-bee "tree map"

I included the suggestion to use bubble wrap to paint and stamp to add the texture of honey combs!

Here are some pictures of the kids making this project in class, and the finished product!

I attached the bee craft to the beehive using pipe cleaners :)

  7. Hi Michelle! I wanted to let you know I was inspired by this craft and made something similar. I posted it on my blog and linked back to this post. Here is the link to my post if you are interested:

  9. This conversation has generated further distinctions and it has become clear to me that some 'natural' beekeepers have come down - at least tentatively - on the 'no interventions' side of the fence, preferring to observe bees and keep them in containers not designed to be opened very often.bee nucs for sale near me

  10. Adorable craft! Just out of curiosity what are the wings made out of?
