In this game, students will learn about pollination by acting out the work of honeybees. They will create bee costumes to wear as they “fly” out to find “pollen” and “nectar.” Then they will communicate with fellow “bees” through waggle dances and bring “pollen” and “nectar” back to their “hive.”
Students play a game in which they pretend to be honeybees and apple trees. In the process, they learn about plant pollination.
Making a place in your schoolyard specifically for native pollinators can help preserve struggling local populations. Students benefit from having a space for real-life observation and exploration, and can feel pride in their environmental stewardship.
Students will observe physical characteristics of flowers and explore principles of pollination.
