Studying about life cycles is a quick, easy & fun way to incorporate a bit of science into your day.

With that in mind, I designed this Life Cycle of a Honey Bee packet, which includes 4 different life cycle “wheel” crafts to choose from.

There are 2 circular wheel covers, as well as a beehive, and hexagon-shaped honeycomb option.

Choose your favorite or give children a choice. My personal favorite is the hexagon, as I take that teachable moment to reinforce this “toughie” shape, getting in some math along with science.

The patterns come in black & white for students, as well as colorful templates, so that you can quickly and easily create an example to share.

I make and laminate all 4, keeping them in our science center

When everyone has completed their life cycle wheel, review the stages of the honey bee as a whole group, then have children partner up and take turns explaining the life cycle to each other.

I’ve also included 2 colorful life cycle of a honey bee posters, which can be used to introduce the lesson, then hung up as an anchor chart, or placed in the center of your bulletin board display.

So that you can check comprehension, and reinforce the life cycle vocabulary, the posters also have matching black & white worksheets for your students, with 4 options to suit various levels.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy “turning & learning” with this hands-on craft.
