Learning about Bees

Our first graders are well into their apple study.  This week, we learned about bees as pollinators for Apple trees as well as other plants.  Miss Abby, from The Tenafly Nature Center came to talk to each 1st grade class about bees.  She provided a great hands on experience for the children.  She showed us trays from the beehives, the beekeeping outfit, honeycomb, and the honey extractor.  The first graders are very excited for their field trip to Dr. Davies apple farm.
