Students can make a construction paper beehive when learning about apiology.

If you are teaching young children about bees and their pollination methods, make the assignment more exciting and interactive by providing the children with a hands-on activity related to the lesson. For example, show the kids how to make a 3D beehive out of basic craft materials, such as construction paper and a popular breakfast cereal. Once finished, the students can display their projects, along with an essay about bees.


Step 1

Draw hexagons with a pencil onto a sheet of yellow construction paper. Fill the entire sheet with hexagons.
