INTRODUCTION: Bees have a very important job in the environment. Bees are pollinators. As a pollinator, a bee’s job is to carry pollen from plant to plant. Pollen is a yellow powder that plants need in order to grow new seeds. When plants make more seeds, more plants will grow. Many plants, nuts, fruits and berries depend on bee’s to get the pollen they need.
GOAL – Your goal is to learn more about bees and what important job they do in nature.
ROLE – You are a beekeeper who wants to know more about honeybees. You want to understand how they live and what they need in order to survive.
