Big Buzz about Bees
10:00 am - 11:00 am

HV Photo

For Preschoolers through Grade 1, with guardian

Bees are wonderful, helpful creatures.. and this class, designed especially for little ones, is a terrific way to introduce them in a fun and age-appropriate way to this amazing, tiny winged friend of humans. Teacher Kendal will open your child's eyes, and yours too, with stories and lots of interesting things to show about an often unfairly feared little being.

Everyone gets a chance to see and touch all the parts of a working beehive and learn about the tools that it takes to be a beekeeper. We’ll talk about how bees collect pollen and nectar and contribute to many of the foods and products we love. We’ll also explore the many jobs that the different types of bees do inside and out of the hive. The class wraps up with taking a peek inside of a real working hive (it’s completely contained safely behind plexiglass) so we can see real worker bees caring for young larvae, making honey, and if we’re lucky, we may be able to spot the queen bee! And of course, we’ll taste the sweet rewards of beekeeping - honey harvested locally in Los Altos!
