Buzz about bees!
Our Buzz about Bees primary resource introduces children to bees with seven mind-blowing facts about these amazing insects. How many times a minute does a bee beat its wings? What unusual use did the Ancient Greeks have for bee venom? Up to how many honeybees may live in a single hive...?
This primary resource can be used to introduce children to bees and other pollinating insects - as a printed handout for each pupil to review and annotate, or for display on the interactive whiteboard for class discussion.
The pupils could use this primary resource as a template for making their own 'Buzz About Bees' poster, featuring 5-7 facts sourced from independent or group research. Alternatively, divide the class into groups and get each group to produce a fact-based, colourful poster on a different insect (perhaps specifically pollinating insects). The posters could be used as part of a classroom display
