Nothing is going to stop us from learning... not even the rain!
It was a rainy Tuesday morning, the children from the Butterfly class took the opportunity to do some pre-learning prior to our Wednesday's field trip. Marnick, our outdoor nature leader went over some fun bee facts; they got see, touch and feel beeswax as they collected their own pollen and nectar! They also made their own honeycomb using pom poms and egg cartons! What a great way to learn about honey production... our students truly were the 'busy bees' on this day!
Watching a short video about a bee's life cycle...
This week, our children visited Po Sang Yuan Bee Farm in Fanling to learn about bees and the benefits of honey. It was a great way for us to learn about the bees' importance as pollinators. We ended our fieldtrip by having a refreshing glass of honey lemon tea which went very well with our snacks, may we add!
Getting up, close and personal!
Nom nom nom!
