We had a fun couple of weeks talking about bees! We are now seeing them everywhere and it is easy to notice their diversity, and so fun to imagine their lives inside the hive and what the world must look like to them. We had a fun quick little visit to my neighbors hive on Friday am, and we tasted honeycomb and chewed the beeswax. Then we made homemade honey graham crackers! Melissa took some photos. I will update the blog soon with more shots than what I can attach here.
This week we are beginning a unit on bugs, We will be talking about all kinds of everyday bugs and their lives, and finishing up the school year with some painted lady caterpillars that we hope to be lucky enough to watch successfully metamorphosize before our eyes.
