Bumble bees like you’ve never seen them before! Examine preserved bumblebees focusing on the structure and function of their body parts. Learn about the interesting life-cycle of the bumblebee, their preferred habitat and compare and contrast the differences between bumblebees and honeybees. By exploring how we see colour students investigate how flowers have evolved to attract bumblebees and other pollinators. Children will observe and discuss the relationship between sound and vibration; this will allow them to create a model that demonstrates “buzz pollination”, which is a unique characteristic of bumblebees that enables them to be extremely efficient pollinators. And finally the children will have the opportunity to construct their own bumblebee nest.
