Bees visit flowers and Bee inquiry

Bees are responsible for pollinating plants which provide much of our food, for example, runner beans, tomatoes and apples. They are also fascinating insects for children to study.  Two activities presented in Plants Café encourage children aged 7-11  to consider why bees visit flowers, the implications of their dependence on bees for some of their food and how they can encourage bees to visit a garden.  The first activity involves a concept cartoon where children have to evaluate each others’ ideas using discussion and debate.  The second activity involves children observing bumblebees visiting plants and using secondary data to develop science enquiry skills.
