This past week Mr. Ron Weaver came to teach us all about our new honeybees! We will be getting our hive of bees over spring break. He brought an observation hive with him for the students and teachers to look at. We learned all about the honeybees, what they eat, how to spot the queen, what they do all day, and even how to treat a sting. It was very informative and fun. It is so exciting to think that our honeybees will be here soon. They will be housed in the library- come by and see them!
The students in our class began getting our garden beds ready to plant. We are hoping to get everything planted before spring break! We’ve also had some changes in our insect zoos. Our brassica caterpillars have changed and our painted lady caterpillars have gotten quite big! We may be returning tomorrow to some butterflies…fingers crossed.
