Bees & Butterflies.....
Your child will start by investigating the bee's body parts, life and work. He will explore the shape of a honeycomb and then build his own beehive. From pretending to be a bee to making honey, your child will learn how bees help and hurt us. He will also explore other insects that look like bees. As the topic changes to butterflies, your child will bring home his own book about the life cycle of a butterfly. This week we talked about where various bees live, what the inside of a beehive looks like and where bees find food. They learned bees have two stomachs. One stomach is for eating the food and the other is for saving food to take to the nest. We used an eye dropper to suck us the water (pretend nectar) and carried it to the hive (ice cube tray). We made a queen bee headband, yellow jacket noisemaker and a hornet nest. They loved touching and tasting honey! And of course....we had to have peanut butter and honey sandwiches which were a big hit!!
