Product Description
This is a 4 page sub plan that explores colony collapse disorder (CCD) and how it can affect crops- and the students. This science sub plan explains how commercial beehives are affected by CCD, and what the possible solution might be. This resource encourages literacy in science (reading and graphing).

This sub plan ties in with evolution (coevolution; genetic diversity), but also relates to all of us as we are all affected by the decline of bees and should be familiar with this event. An explanation of pollination is offered and students will end the reading having a better understanding of the roles bees play in agriculture and how they affect our lives.

There are two versions (each are 4 pages): the regular version includes a graphing exercise which students do a line graph separately, and a version that omits the graph.

Each version includes ways that students can help save the bees.
