One of my favorite studies to put together in our curriculum has been our bee themed home school unit. Every summer we add more resources, more hands on activities, and more bee friendly corners in our garden to get closer to these important little pollinators. Our children love watching as our garden blooms and one by one the bees come to gather nectar to take back to their hive. If you’ve been wanting to observe bees with your little ones or you’re building a bee unit of your own you’re in luck. We complied a list of our favorites resources just for you.
For me, building a home school unit is all about the books. I love being able to grab a stack of books off of the shelf on any subject and build a week or month’s worth of activities & lessons from the stories and facts they hold. Our collection of bee books is one of our larger collections and we love reading them over and over again. I try to have books for a range of ages that cover different aspects of the bee’s life. Here’s a list of our favorite bee reads:
