How to Play
Students are presented with bees carrying words in different fonts and colors. Students must match the word to a hive by dragging a bee to its hive.
Whole Class Cooperation
The class works together sorting words on the interactive whiteboard. Determine how long you will play or set a goal for the number of words to complete before you start the game. Have one student at a time come up to the interactive whiteboard and sort a word by touching and dragging a word to the correct hive.
Small group or single player – Played on a computer workstation, PC or Mac
Start the game on a computer and allow the student(s) to play for a certain length of time. If you want to create a competition between students, record their scores on a piece of paper or blackboard and see who can sort the most words in a defined amount of time.
