Ep 2: How do Birds get their Color?

Ep 1: How a Bee Stings

Did you ever wonder who the bees are exactly, and who they are related to? Did you ever see a bee on a flower and ask yourself; what exactly makes a bee a bee? Or maybe have you pondered why bees sting, and if they can all sting?

In this educational nature video we explore all of these questions and more as we seek to discover how bees sting.

Below the video you will find an activity sheet to help explore the topic more. Once you’ve finished I would love to see your creations!
