Learn how to build a strong foundation for your Bee Program! Our most successful programs begin with a layer of lessons and curriculum. Here we share exactly how to start a Bee Program and grow from the bottom up! Whether or not you have live bees on your campus, this will help to grow a community around your buzzworthy educational endeavors!
The folders in this Group will provide curriculums, virtual field trips with lessons, suggested Citizen Science Projects, book clubs for kids with lessons, and relevant webinars and recordings to help any educator deliver quality instruction. All of our offerings have teacher guides, are mapped to the standards, and are easily adapted to digital platforms.
We recommend the educator work through each level of the How to Start + Grow Your Bee Program Pyramid by exploring the offerings within each Folder. The resources build on each other as the educator and students move through this learning pathway.
