THIS UNIT IS FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO LEARN BEEKEEPING… AND THOSE WHO DON’T!
Not interested in beekeeping but want to learn all about the wonderful world of bees (the AMAZING science, history, math, funny facts, and hands-on learning that comes with it all)? Do you want an experience that might influence your family’s future decisions, such as how they view environmental debates, how to care for creatures in nature, or how to study the incredible world God created? This 6-lesson mini unit is for you! Walk into the world of a beehive and see just how much science and character-building these little gals can teach you! Work ethic, faith talks, and more… see how it all comes together in this incredibly fun mini unit! Our Charlotte Mason-inspired activity options and living story format will help your family learn about bees in a real way (not a textbook way!), and you might just fall in love…with insects!
Do you want to learn how to actually become a beekeeper? Do you want your family to have an opportunity to connect with nature that they wouldn’t get otherwise and learn amazing responsibility? Or, perhaps, do you want to discover how to harvest some really delicious honey while learning some self-sustaining skills? Maybe you want to help get the family involved in a skill that ‘dad’ would love or where siblings can come together? This is a must-do! The entire unit (the 6 regular lessons PLUS the SYW pages) are for you! The SYW pages guide beginner beekeepers, step-by-step, to prepare them for how to begin beekeeping when they are ready, what to look for as they move forward, and how it all works!
This can be used as core curriculum (with Core Connections) or as an extracurricular (without Core Connections). To see what is covered in each unit, go HERE.
DIFFERENCES FROM THE NORM:
*Please note, this has our older format for Core Connections. If you want to see what our current units Core Connections are like, please view our FREE Samples page.*
This is one of our older units, so it is separated into five guidebooks instead of three. [pre-reader, elementary, middle school, high school, adult –vs– Early Learner, Growing Learner, Advanced Learner]. We better streamlined the guidebooks (formerly called “journals”) as we went along.
