One World: Service Bees
Thomason, Rhonda
Teaching Tolerance, n35 p64 Spr 2009
Bees are a vital part of the ecology. People of conscience are a vital part of society. In Nina Frenkel's "One World" poster, the bee is also a metaphor for the role of the individual in a diverse society. This article presents a lesson that uses Frenkel's poster to help early-grades students connect these ideas and explore both the importance of bees and the importance of one's own actions in an interdependent world. This lesson aims to help students understand the concept of pollination, explore how species depend on one another and the environment for survival, and increase personal responsibility for caring for one another and the environment.
