BeeHive Yourself: The Classroom as Beehive (Ages 3-7)
Who knew that honey bees work as construction workers, nurses and chefs, janitors, salon staff and masseuses, heating and cooling professionals, security guards and wild food foragers? In this workshop we will dress up and try out the myriad jobs of bees inside and outside the hive. We will also learn a song to teach the three castes in the hive: worker, drone and queen.

for a Sweet & More Flowerful New Year (Grades K – 6)

After the seed balls dry, and then toss them onto bare or neglected land to sprout in Fall or Spring. Watch the wildflowers bloom!
