Just in time for back to school, Nature Nate’s Honey Co., producer of 100 percent pure, raw and unfiltered honey, is offering a “Long Live the Bees” lesson plan, tailored for kindergarten through second-grade students. It is now available for free download.
As part of Nature Nate’s Long Live the Bees initiative, which promotes bee health, the company collaborated with four teachers and one home educator from across the country to create the lesson plan. Each contributed a fun-filled, educational way for kids to learn about honey, bees or pollination. Segments of the lesson plan include:
• The various roles of a honey bee;
• The shape of honeycomb and why it’s ideal for the hive;
• How bees communicate;
• The different flavors of honey; and
• How we can promote bee health.
“We are so grateful for the tremendous work of our partner educators to highlight the importance of bees and the awesomeness of honey,” said Nathan Sheets, founder and CEO of Nature Nate’s, which is based in McKinney, Texas. “It’s our hope that as teachers and home educators share these materials in their classrooms, kids will be excited about protecting bee populations and have a greater appreciation for all the ways bees help us live healthy, happy lives.”
In 2018, Nature Nate’s launched the Long Live the Bees initiative to bring greater awareness to the many issues affecting honey bee health and drive consumer action. In addition to providing lesson plans and educational tools for kids, the company invests in formal conservation research programs at Cornell University, University of Georgia, Texas A&M University and University of Texas – Dallas.
