activities go along with my other articles, making a complete bee unit
Make bees wax candles. You
can get sheets of bees wax at craft stores and many come with wicks. Also
included are directions for making regular candles and taper candles.
Make a model bee. Use
foam balls for the head, thorax and abdomen. Attach them together with
toothpicks. Paint the 3 body parts. Use pipe cleaners for the legs and
to form the wings. Glue paper onto the wing forms or just leave the wing
forms plain. Use a pipe cleaner for the tongue. Use beads for the eyes.
Learn what is included
in a bee sting kit.
Discuss what the expressions
"You catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar", "Make a bee-line
for it", "She's the Queen Bee" or "As busy as a bee" means. Can you think
of any more bee expressions?
