In "Creating Home," a Tapestry of Faith program
Doing a hands-on activity, children will learn to identify the hive as a home for bees.
Gather the children at worktables. Distribute Handout 1, Bee Body Parts and/or the parts you have already cut out, along with glue sticks and, if children will be cutting, scissors.
Show the children the poster again. Point out that the poster's beehive, and say you need their help to find the bees that live there. Tell the children they may each make a bee for the poster.
Show them your completed bee as one example of how the body parts could be put together. Distribute Handout 1, Bee Body Parts, scissors, and glue. If you have cut out the pieces earlier, let each child pick a body part piece and a head and glue them together. Help the children draw yellow stripes on their bees with the highlighter marker and glue on the bees' wings.
Allow children to be creative when cutting out the body parts and putting them together — it is not necessary for all the bees to look alike.
As children finish their bees, set the bees aside to dry. Allow children whose bees are not finished to continue working while you begin Activity 3: What Bees Do at Home.
