We were thrilled to welcome Phil Gaven from The Honey Exchange to our school on Thursday. He visited the entire second grade to share his expertise on honeybees and the process of making honey. The students enjoyed seeing videos and photos of honeybee swarms and "waggle dances." They had opportunities to share their knowledge of insects and life cycles, too. At the end of the presentation, students visited three stations so they could observe an actual bee colony, taste test honey and explore/wear beekeeper's equipment. It was an informative and hands-on presentation. We would like to extend a special thank you to Mr. Gaven for sharing his time and talents with us today!
