Let’s Get Buzzing for World Bee Day – #readilearn

World Bee Day will be celebrated next week on 20 May.  The purpose of World Bee Day is to celebrate these wonderful pollinators upon whom we are so dependent, and not just for their delicious honey. Without bees, there’d be a lot less, and many fewer varieties of, food for us to eat.

Note: As for all videos, I recommend you watch them first to ascertain suitability before sharing them with your class.

The World Bee Day website contains useful advice and many resources to assist your involvement in the day, including a fun waggle dance challenge you and your children will enjoy.

    Such an important post on the importance of honeybees. I enjoyed the videos as they were very informative! Thanks for sharing! My sister-in-law raises honeybees on their organic farm. And, I love to gift honeybees through Heifer International to families in need around the world. Bees are crucial to our food supply.
    My favorite PB is Honeybee: The Busy Life of Apis Mellifera by Candace Fleming. Gorgeous book, if you haven’t read it! .

      I’m pleased you enjoyed the post and videos, Patricia. How wonderful to gift honeybees to International families. I must check out that organisation. And the book by Candace Fleming. For it to be your favourite PB really says something.

    It’s taken a long time, but I think people finally understand that bees are the most important pollinators of flowers, fruits, and vegetables.

    Great info! I just had a long conversation with my sister who raises bees. She had a swarm adopt her home. She didn’t have room for it so a friend came over and adopted them. Such interesting stuff!
