Learning Through Play - Bees

Today we had Scarlett, Luke, Tahlia and Eva visiting the Pukeko Nest. 

A HUGE THANK YOU to Holly's mum Aletta, and Tahlia's mum Bridget for all your help!

Following on from their 'Wondering' of 'What do bees use their antennae for?' our learning centred around learning about the honey bee's anatomy.

They learned that a honey bee has a head, 5 eyes, a thorax, 4 wings, an abdomen, 6 legs, and a sting. They created bees out of mixed media for art, and created their own drawings. They also did a waggle dance, and honey bee rap. For science they recreated an accurate anatomy of a honey bee using playdough and pipe cleaners, and for technology they created a bee from recycled materials. 

And the answer to their 'Wondering' was that bees use their antennae to feel, taste and check the temperature!
