World Bee Day will be celebrated next week on 20 May. The purpose of World Bee Day is to celebrate these wonderful pollinators upon whom we are so dependent, and not just for their delicious honey. Without bees, there’d be a lot less, and many fewer varieties of, food for us to eat.
Note: As for all videos, I recommend you watch them first to ascertain suitability before sharing them with your class.
The World Bee Day website contains useful advice and many resources to assist your involvement in the day, including a fun waggle dance challenge you and your children will enjoy.
There are also suggestions for what you can do as a school, community group or individual to contribute to the survival of these amazing creatures.
