Content Detail

Make a beeline down to The Morton Arboretum to learn about the importance of bees and why they are under threat. This workshop will focus on these furry pollinators, their impact on humans and other animals, why they’re important, and generate some citizen science ideas you can implement with your students.

Geared towards educators of grades 3 through 5, you will leave with a number of activities, games, lessons, and ways in which you can encourage your class, school, and even neighborhood to help save the bees. Come prepared to spend some time “buzzing” around outdoors!
