Primary students have been studying bees and we were fortunate to have visitors come tell us all about them. Nick and Amy Fankhauser brought the tools and equipment they use to raise bees. We learned that sometimes bees need fixed their hive and use propolis to do so. Propolis is something that the bees make, spitting it out and using it like glue. Bees can also turn nectar into honey by drying it. Young bees move air over the nectar by beating their wings at entrance. Bees communicate by dancing and we all had fun wiggling and dancing like bees after our visitors left.
