The Pack contains more than 100 classroom activities for younger children in Key Stage 1, as well as complicated tasks for older children, including 'A' level students. Information about pollination, bees and food and the importance of biodiversity is also included.
Two DVDs contained within the pack comprise activities, worksheets and powerpoint presentations along with weblinks. They also give viewers the opportunity to see inside a hive through the eyes of some Year 6 students.
Whilst raising awareness of how much our life is connected with nature, bees and pollinators the pack supports bees in particular.
The aim of the pack is to make sure youngsters are more aware of the need for a diverse range of plants and animals in and around the city to help them understand the link between plants, animals and the food they eat, and to give them the opportunity to see for themselves how fascinating life inside a hive can be, it may also help youngsters with insect phobias to overcome their fear.
BdBKA will also be offering schools the opportunity to have an interactive session with a Bradford beekeeper and will also be welcoming school visits to our training apiary during the beekeeping season.
