Brilliant Bees ... A Progressive Project!
There are options to make the project progressive enabling children to revisit the subject in later years. Pupils are encouraged to carry out surveys, tally data, form graphs and interpret data from a range of habitats. Survey data can be used to improve school grounds and encourage bees by making more food and shelter available to them. Pupils may construct bee nests and monitor any inhabitants.This in turn could have an impact on other wildlife and introduce additional food chains!
