Planting for Bees! (Year 3 – Year 4)

Learning Kit

Immerse your students in a journey to discover the invaluable relationship between bees and plants. Developed by our very own qualified teachers, ‘Planting for Bees!’ Year 3 – Year 4 includes a complete unit of work including 11x 1 hour lesson plans with a focus on pollination and the European Honey Bee as a vital pollinator.

Students will explore the process of pollination, plant and bee biology, the impact of the honey bee on our food security, and the role we play as humans in supporting the symbiotic relationship between bees and plants. ‘Planting for Bees!’ is aligned with the Australian and Victorian Science Curriculum.

*Shipments to WA and Tasmania will not include seeds or honey due to biosecurity restrictions.
