4th grade bee loving and edible planting project
We talked about the declining bee population, and how that could impact our food supply. We talked about the use of pesticides and the role they may be playing in the decline of the bee population, along with loss of habitat and climate change. The class eagerly discussed ways to encourage bees to come to their yard, including planting perennial plants, providing a water source for bees, and providing shelter for them. The class had been learning about healthy eating choices, so we also talked about growing your own herbs, and each student planted a basil seed and a bee loving plant in a compostable pot to take home to plant in their own yard.
