Based on the book The Honeybee by Kirsten Hall, the Doodlebugs drew a simple honeybee and created a beautiful soft pastel background.
Science & Nature Connection:
We talked about how honeybees are important in nature because they pollinate fruit, vegetables and flowers. They learnt that pollination causes plants to produce seeds, which is a key part of the life cycle of plants.
We also discovered with the help of this delightful book that honeybees live in a hive where there is one queen bee, lots of female worker bees and male bees called drones. The worker bees are the bees that leave the hive to search for pollen and nectar. If you see a honeybee, you don’t have to be afraid. Though the bee has a stinger, she will only use it if she is threatened. She is out looking for food and she is not interested in people!
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
