SC: The Bees Knees   (Week 3)

What does it feel like to see the world through bee’s eyes? How do bees find flowers to pollinate? How can we help our little winged friends? This workshop helps children to understand what a bee’s life is like. Activities include creating glasses to alter your vision to see how bees see, using your sense of smell to create a watercolor painting, visiting the museum to observe a live bee hive, building a “bee hotel”, and  making a map using your footprints. Children will see what it is like to live like a bee and learn more about how they can help these important animals (bee puns may or may not be included).
