Honey bees are an important part of our ecosystem. Our bee population is in crisis. In this SAVE THE BEES PROJECT BASED LEARNING SCIENCE unit, students will research honey bees, interview bee keepers and come up with ideas of saving the population. They can even host a "Bee Sweet Tasting Party." STEM can be incorporated into the Save the Bees unit when students build their Bee Hotel.

Feedback from Buyer "I love this! I used this when our principal's area director came in to observe my classroom! I paired it with the butterfly lifecycle. My principal, APs, and the area director were very impressed by the vocabulary my students were using! That vocabulary came from your resource! Thank you!"

Feedback from Buyer "This was just what I needed and just what I was looking for! This is an EXCELLENT resource for the price and has been so engaging for my students. We've learned so much already and still are working through it! I love how you can use bits and pieces of this resources or use it all and still create a meaningful PBL. I hope to continue using this for years to come! It could be adapted for many different grade levels."
