Honeybees Lesson

Today for school we started our Unit study on Honeybees

 Very interesting insects for sure!  Did you know that a single (female) worker honeybee can visit up to 10,000 flowers each day!  The males (drones) don't sting you, but watch out for those females!

Fantastic to learn about honeybees! My Dad was a beekeeper!
May I suggest a Youtube channel that has a few excellent video clips teaching about honeybees that we've used in our homeschool study of honeybees.

Lindsay - you almost never see the Males, they are in the hive taking care of the queen
