For the last period, the CP/CE1 did a study on honeybees. We looked at the life cycle, the different types of bees and their roles in the beehive. Then we saw how honey was made in both a farm and a factory. We took a quick break to do some math, where we studied the hexagon and did some addition and subtraction puzzles. The students illustrated and recited a small poem to their classmates.

For art class we worked on a collaborative project; a giant bee puzzle!

To end the unit we made some honeycomb candy, that seemed to make everyone happy.
