Buzzy Buzzy Bees

Before our break the little gardeners at Wilton Place Elementary transformed into bees, in our game called buzzy buzzy bee.

Before we played we talked about how are busy bee visits certain parts of the flower so that we can get seeds. That also do something called Cross Pollination, which is when a bee (or any other pollinator) carries pollen from a whole other plant to another, in this case Orange trees to a whole other tree.

In our game some students were bees, and the other student’s where trees, and the bees would run around in the summer, or slowly move in the winter, from tree to tree collecting pollen.

This way the students can act out a bees job but also understand out the seasons also effect our fruit production. It’s a lot of fun and you get to learn something. Always a win!
