Want to check satellite flyover times for yourself? Check out this link - you can give it your location then get a 5-day forecast on satellites that are bright enough to see without a telescope. http://www.n2yo.com/
This week we have a beekeeper coming to our class to teach us about honeybees! You might be familiar with the pain of a bee sting but how much do you know about these fascinating insects? Did you know that without bees, many of our crops would fail and food production would drop to critical levels? Bees are responsible for pollinating the flowers and blossoms of the fruits and vegetables that we enjoy.
We’ll also learn about honey production when our guest visits later this week. Did you know that honey made in different areas looks different (in color) and even tastes different? Why do you think this is true?
To earn a reward, provide answers to these two questions: (1) Why do you think that honey made in different areas looks and tastes different? (2) What are the three main types of honeybees? Your answers are due by class on Thursday.
