Honey Bees

Our honey bee lapbooks in the making.

Lapbook covers in order...Zak's then Tj's and finally Max's cover. They are all so different. I love it!

The bee hive cover is free clip art found here.

Bee hive pictures coincide with a narrative about how the bees make the wax. The book is a simple one. I took heavy black paper and folded it in half. Then I cut bright yellow printer paper to fit the book. To bind it I punched hole with a hole pucher and tied it together with black embroidary floss.

The 'kinds of bees' mini books pictures are found here, and the info about the bees found in The First Book of bees by Albert Tibbits.

Life cycle of the bee wheel is from Homeschool Share

The anatomy of the bee mini book found here.

The honey harvesting process mini books, 9 in all are found here.

A friend gave us this fun kit to make bees wax candles. The boys are standing behind the candle they made.

I created this copywork notebook. It's FREE at Currclick!

The boys are just about finished with it. They like to work on it while I read.
We read the following books during this mini unit:

The Adventires of Maya the Bee or with comprehension question here.

and we watched...City of the Bees. One of the Moddy Science Videos
