Last year the author's local beekeeping association had over 700 children visit it. Every single one of them knew that there was a queen bee and all the children and their teachers wanted to see her. Children are fascinated by bees. The whole process of living in an apparently small community, making honey, visiting flowers, waggle dances, having a queen--and the dreadful knowledge that bees sting--makes bees a sure-fire way of holding the attention of small children. In this article the author gives some ideas about working with bees in school. (Contains 7 figures, 3 boxes, and 3 online resources.)
