Third Grade Classes Learn about Bees

MRS. CHILDERS & MRS. SHANKLES THIRD GRADE CLASSES LEARN ABOUT BEES

 

In conjunction with their study of plants, the students learned about bees and their role in pollination and the making of seeds. The students were very excited to have as guest speakers, Brad and Amy Williams. Brad and Amy are the parents of Ethan Williams, a third grader in Mrs. Childers’ class. They own a local bee farm where they raise honey for distribution, as well as, to use in other products such as lip balm. Mr. and Mrs. Williams brought in equipment, tools, and protective gear they use on their farm. They demonstrated how they care for the bees, gather the honey, and get it ready for distribution. They also answered MANY questions from the students. The students even got to taste a sample of the pure honey. It was a fun day for everyone!
