The Indispensable Bee

Watch out for those stinging bees! Soon the sight of sight of spring flowers will bring busy bees out of their nests. Bees may sometimes seem to be pesky. But, bees are pollinators. Bees carry pollen to plants as they look for nectar. Bees and other insects pollinate much of our fruits, vegetables, nuts and other edible plants. Unfortunately, according to experts, the bee population may become depleted. The predicament of the bumble bee impacts wildlife and us all. Learn more about the important bubble bee with this collection of lesson plan packets, videos, songs and ideas for your classroom and school. Who knows? Maybe your class or school could spot and report bees, sponsor a beehive or apply for a grant and create a community wildflower garden for pollinators!
