This week, we continued our study of bugs. While in the park, we made observations on different types of bugs, like worms, cicadas, bees and more. We also focused our study in on bees! After reading some books about bees, we talked about how colonies are structured and what queen bees look like. We learned different facts about bees, which helped campers conquer some fears. We then made connections between bees and other bugs we know.
As always, we spent much of our day in the park. Campers loved making references to what they learned as they observed different types of bugs in nature. We talked about ways we can keep bugs safe, like protecting their habitat and returning bugs we find back to nature. Next week we move on to our new study, but we will continue to notice the bugs around us!
