Busy little bees

What do bees do the whole day? What is their purpose? What do they look like and where does honey come from? These were some of the questions which came up at our facility in Harras during our current theme looking at nature and the environment. The educators wanted to make sure that none of the questions were left unanswered and knowing that children learn better through practical experience, off they went on an excursion to the botanical gardens. There the children were introduced to a variety of flowers, trees and herbs, which are necessary to produce honey. They also observed the bees in their natural habitat and watched while the bees flew from one flower to next. Lastly, one of the staff members from the botanical garden explained to children in detail how honey is made. No wonder that suddenly everyone was craving a slice of bread with honey on.
