Learning About Bees & Honey

xhoney14The big excitement at our home the last few days has been our honey harvest of this weekend.  We got our first beehives back in April and had been anticipating the day we would get to taste their honey.  This weekend was it. 

We had friends over and made a fieldtrip out of it, and we are taking a  break from our regular science curriculum to work on a bee unit.

I found a complete, free honeybee lapbook at Homeschool Share. 

We watched Moody's City of Bees video and read library books about bees.

I had fun drawing on the board while explaining the parts of the bee and the shapes of the cells in the honey comb.  The girls used my board sketches to draw copy their own pictures for bee cover pages for their lapbooks.


We also watched this nice video about queen bees.

Follow the link to read more about our honey harvest.

These are the books and video we used for our bee study.

Now you can go visit the Homeschool Chick's Hip Homeschool Hop and see what other homeschoolers are doing this week.
