Did you know that some species of bee employ a technique called sonication, or buzz pollination, when they harvest pollen? During sonication, the bee rapidly vibrates its flight muscles while attached to the flower. This loosens the pollen, which makes it easier to collect. Bees are fascinating in many ways. Join this 4 week flex course to learn more. Bee Topics Week 1-Basics of Bees, Bee Life Cycle, Bee Anatomy Week 2-Pollination, Beekeeping, Bee Products, Begin Paper Mache Hive Week...

No third party apps will be used except for Youtube for summary videos. Parents will be needed during this class-for the first week to help the student with practice assignments and for the mache project. Please check the class wall, student spiral, and your parent inbox regularly. This class involves the student making a paper mache hive. They are many different recipes to make paper mache. I will provide a how to link and video, but you can use whatever method you prefer. The student will need help to make the mache hive because of the supplies needed. Some use a hot glue gun and various types of glues, so please supervise.
