Have you thanked a Bee today?

If you have been following DanceKids you know we love our honey and food and just adore bees.

So you might be interested in this new technology for looking after bees: it is the Purple Hive Project.

Speaking of Bees, we are excited to this week announce the arrival of beautiful new livery (aka protective folders!) for our Take Flight Education Creative Classroom Kit The Dancing Honey Bee.

Read all about Take Flight Education here, Creative Classroom kits here and shop for the Dancing Honey Bee kit here.

Embracing the Australian Curriculum, this Creative Classroom Kit empowers teachers to bring the science (and magic) of Honey Bees to life in their classrooms. With the aid of eight video episodes, a workbook, original music and more, the Kits guide teachers every step of the way as they use dance and drama as tools to engage and inform their students.

Kit Components:

The Video –  This lies at the heart of the kit, bringing to life how Honey bees communicate, pollinate, their life cycles, make honey and more! There are eight episodes, with each episode divided into three parts:

  • The fun learning part set in the lab
  • Learning the episodes dances in the hive (without music)
  • Doing the dances to music

Here is a short preview of what you can expect:

The Work Book – Divided into eight modules to compliment the video episodes, each module contains the following components:

  • Australian and Arts Curriculum Links
  • Background Science Information
  • Dance Steps Guide
  • Classroom Activities
