2nd Grade (90 minutes) $30.00/classroom*
Did you know that
almost 1,000 plants that we rely on worldwide for food, beverages, medicines and spices require pollinators?
Students who participate in this program will gain and understanding of the delicate balance between pollinating insects
and their natural environment. By addressing such themes as the life cycles of bees and flowering plants, students
will understand how these organisms rely on each other to survive. They will learn how they can act responsibly with
the environment, and discuss the consequences of diminished pollinators. We will introduce Myra Parsons, a local
pioneer woman who is important in our local history, and one of the area's first bee keepers.
*If more than one classroom participates
on the same day we can arrange for a discount.
