If you are teaching young children about bees and their pollination methods, make the assignment more exciting and interactive by providing the children with a hands-on activity related to the lesson. For example, show the kids how to make a 3D beehive out of basic craft materials, such as construction paper and breakfast cereal. Once finished, the students can display their projects, along with an essay about bees.

Draw hexagons with a pencil onto a sheet of yellow construction paper. Fill the entire sheet with hexagons.

Trace around each hexagon using an orange marker.

Apply a dollop of craft glue into the centre of each hexagon.

Place a piece of honeycomb cereal onto each glue dollop.

Allow the glue to dry completely, and then display the beehive on a wall or notice board.
