Let's learn about bees! Minecraft Education Edition (MEE) is a free download and students will login with subscriptions I have already purchased. MEE is not dependent on any version of Minecraft you may already have. It is a completely different product. There are downloads for Chromebooks, Windows 10 Desktop, MAC and Ipad. This is a multi-day class with the following schedule(*Note that we meet M-Th, not on Fridays*): 1st Week Monday: Diversity & Survival Needs Tuesday: Habitat...
This class is taught in English.
Students will learn about: - the diversity of bees in the United States - bee survival needs and habitat - types of nests bees use - products that bees produce - bee anatomy & life cycle - bee pollination & farming practices that help bees ( In "teacherees") NGSS Science and Engineering Practices: Carrying Out Investigations; Analyzing and Interpreting Data NGSS Crosscutting Concepts: Patterns NGSS Disciplinary Core Ideas: LS2.A: Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems; LS4.C: Adaptation Recognize the diversity and distribution of bumble bees in the US NGSS Crosscutting Concepts: Cause and Effect NGSS Science and Engineering Practices: Defining Problems, Designing Solutions NGSS Disciplinary Core Ideas: LS1.B: Growth and Development of Organisms; LS1.C: Organization for Matter and Energy Flow in Organisms; LS2.D: Social Interactions and Group Behavior Recognize a bee’s needs throughout its life cycle NGSS Science and Engineering Practices: Engaging in Argument from Evidence; Designing Solutions NGSS Disciplinary Core Ideas: LS4.C: Adaptation; ETS1.A: Defining and Delimiting an Engineering Problem Students recognize the role of environmental pressures and disturbances in driving adaptation NGSS Crosscutting Concepts: Systems and System Models, NGSS Disciplinary Core Ideas: LS1.C: Organization for Matter and Energy Flow In Organisms (How do organisms obtain and use the matter and energy they need to live and grow?); ESS3.A: Natural Resources (How do humans depend on Earth’s resources. Recognize a honeybee hive as a dynamic, complex system) Acknowledge that honeybees do much more than make honey and sting: they produce a wide range of products for their own use that humans can also utilize NGSS Crosscutting Concepts: Patterns NGSS Disciplinary Core Ideas: LS2.A: PS1.A: Structure and Properties of Matter Understand the differences between nectar, honey, and pollen Make systematic observations about different kinds of honey NGSS Crosscutting Concepts: Scale, Proportion, and Quantity NGSS Science and Engineering Practices: Using Mathematics and Computational Thinking; Constructing Explanations NGSS Disciplinary Core Ideas: ETS1.C: Optimizing the Design Solution CCSS.MATH: Geometry, Grades K-8 CCSS.MATH: Measurement & Data, Grades K-5 Understand the importance of beeswax in the hive: how it’s made, stored, and used Apply computational thinking to develop an argument for why hexagons are the most efficient shape for bees to use NGSS Disciplinary Core Ideas: ETS1.B: Developing Possible Solutions; ETS1.C: Optimizing the Design Solution; LS4.A: Evidence of Common Ancestry and Diversity Recognize characteristics shared by all insects, and those unique to honeybees Practice and reflect on iterative design NGSS Disciplinary Core Ideas: LS1.B: Growth and Development of Organisms Recognize the stages of a honeybee’s life cycle, and identify what can help or hurt a bee’s chances of survival Understand the importance of castes and jobs within a hive NGSS Science and Engineering Practices: Asking Questions, Constructing Explanations Students recognize the critical role of pollinators in a thriving ecosystem, including human food systems Students understand the mutually beneficial adaptations that allow plants and their pollinators to survive NGSS Science and Engineering Practices: Defining Problems; Developing Solutions NGSS Disciplinary Core Ideas: LS4.D: Biodiversity and Humans; ESS3.C: Human Impacts on Earth Systems Students recognize that sustainable food production and bee decline are interrelated and complicated topics NGSS Science and Engineering Practices: Engaging in Argument from Evidence Recognize the role of individual and group advocacy in saving bees
Attempt to identify a local bee and contribute to bumblebeewatch.org Students will use crafting materials to make their own bee and nest Students will plan a bee garden which incorporates the different types of nests bees build
1. Upon enrollment, you will receive a link to my icedrive. There, you will be able to download and print the needed worksheet material (needed for each day of class) 2. Colored pencils (needed for Week 1 Monday) 3. Students will make a nest and a bee (needed for Week 1 Wednesday & Week 2 Monday). The following is a list of supplies they can use: yarn, play dough, clay, cellophane, paper towel tubes, glue, tissue paper, glitter, coffee grounds, grass, twigs, hollow stems, moss, dirt, rocks, leaves, flower petals, pipe cleaners, egg cartons, buttons, googly eyes, construction paper, markers, scissors. ** You DO NOT need ALL these supplies, but have some of these on hand for our crafts. ** 4. If possible, also have a small amount of light, medium, and dark colored honey. It is okay if you just have one though! (needed for Week 1 Thursday) 5. a flower (from outside or supermarket), tweezers, magnifying glass (or zoom in on your phone) (needed for Week 2 Wednesday)
8 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I will present various videos and pictures. Students MUST download Minecraft Education Edition (it is a free download) https://education.minecraft.net/get-started/download MEE is available in the following versions: Windows 10 Desktop Chromebook Apple products (MAC & Ipad) It is NOT dependent on any version of Minecraft you may currently have. It is a completely separate downloaded product. After enrollment, you will be sent a link to my icedrive so that you can download and print material we will be using.
