Do bees help flowers?


It is a known fact that bees transfer pollen from flower to flower. Plants will produce seeds or fruit and quite often a bee will help its pollination by transferring pollen from the male part of a flower to the female part, either of the same flower, or of other flowers of the same species. Most honey we eat is collected from hives. In the wild, honeybees don't live in hives. Dead, hollow trees make a perfect home for wild honeybees.

Task 1: Draw a picture of a honeybee.
Task 2: Make a large bee using recycled materials. Hang your bee from a ceiling.
Task 3: Grab a library book on honeybees and read how honey is made by these incredible creatures.
