A Bee Talk

/During the Spring semester at our homeschool cooperative, HSObX, I taught a Science through Story class for 6-8 year olds. Our last class was preempted by amazing talent and performances done by our choir, drama and dance classes. I didn’t mind but had planned a Beekeeping talk for that day. My husband brought all of his stuff, including a jar of bees.

Since we didn’t have time to get to it on the last day, we invited everyone over for a Saturday morning Bee Talk. Mark may have gone a little over the heads of the littlest kids with his talk but it was great for the older kids and parents. When we got to the hive, the little kids were all but INSIDE it. A couple were suited up, they took turns poofing the smoker and gathered closely for a view of the queen.

I think that in addition to learning a bit about bees, most everyone learned not to be afraid of them.
