This Mason Bee course is a hands-on project. While we are making homes for these interesting and gentle pollinators, students will learn about the bees. We'll discuss what the bees do, how they pollinate, where they like to live, and how we can help them survive and thrive. Even if you live in an urban space you can help these little belly-floppers find a place to sleep and lay their eggs.
Students will learn how to make a shelter for the Mason Bees - and make one during class. Students will learn about optimum Mason Bee habitat, what the bees do, how they do it, and how we can help them survive and thrive.
I love the bees. I love nature and gardening. These little guys are very important pollinators. We can help them by building houses to protect them and allow them to repopulate.
After making the Mason Bee home, hang it outside.
1 file available upon enrollmentStudents will need a coffee can, a pair of scissors, a stack of copy paper, non-toxic glue, a marker, some clay or mud (this is for the garden for the bees to use), and a 5/16" dowel (a pencil will work!).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There is no formal assessment. Students will be pleased with their creation and will enjoy hours of watching the Mason Bees this spring and summer.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
There is no sensitive material here. We'll be talking about the birds (predators) and bees (little heroes), but not the Birds & Bees.
