Insects

Yesterday we kicked off our Insect unit by discuss what makes an insect an insect. Then we learned the parts of an insects body by singing Dr. Jean's Insect Body (head, thorax, abdomen, eyes, mouth , antennae two, six legs and there's an insect for you!)
 
Today we learned about bees. We found out that they live in big groups called colonies and every bee has a different job. There is one queen bees. There are worker bees that build homes called hive. They are made from a special wax that comes from the inside of the worker bees bodies. Hives are full of little rooms that are perfect for the baby bees and to store honey.
Bees LOVES to drink nectar from flowers. Then they turn the nectar into honey.
 
Then we made some adorable bees that we hung on our door with the saying: We Bee-long to God.
