During this 45-60 minute
videoconference, your students will dive into the bee-utiful world of
bees.  Students will begin the e-Lab by
learning the basics of bees, what we like to call "Beekeeping 101." A
Lab Director from the Challenger Learning Center will connect to your classroom
dressed as a beekeeper.  We will work
with your students to discuss the parts of a bee, the different types of bees,
and what it is like to be a beekeeper. 
After the basics have been discussed, the students will explore how bees
help each other (teamwork), how bees help nature (pollination), and how bees
are beneficial to humans.  By the
conclusion of the e-Lab your students will be "buzzing" with excitement
about bees!
