Bee – Drawing Lesson

Drawing through the Alphabet.

This is always a cute lesson. Who doesn’t want to draw a fuzzy bee?

  • Bees fly from flower to flower, sipping nectar and collecting grains of pollen. Bees have a special tongue that sucks up the nectar and a crop in their throat for storing it until they get back to the hive, where it is turned into honey to use as food.
  • Bees use smell and body movement to communicate. After they’ve taken all the pollen from a flower, they leave a smell letting other bees know that the flower is empty.
  • Honeybees and bumblebees live in colonies or hives. All the bees in the colony work together for the good of the hive. Each has a job to do: the queen lays the eggs and the workers build the honeycomb, care for the larvae and collect the food.

We read this book Bear and Bee too Busy We also practiced the sound that B makes and the best part was our friend Bee who would land next to each student and watch them draw. They loved that part!Photo Feb 05, 5 34 13 PM
