Mini-Research Bee Hive Activity

Pretend that you are a bee keeper and you have 15 bee hives. One day a big bear came to your bee hive farm to try and steal all your honey that the bees are making. Luckily your neighbor saw the bear and scared him off before the bear stole any of your honey! But the bear moved all the bee hives around and now you have to put the bee hives back in order from 1 through 15 before the morning when the honey man comes and collects the honey out of the bee hives. Work quickly and good luck!

Steps For Bee Hive Activity

1. First we will look at our numbers 1 through 15 to make sure we are able to place them in the right order. We will work on our numbers by visiting the learning plant and practice placing the numbers in the right order.
2. Now that we have gone over our numbers let's see if we can get these bee hives back in order!
3. You will be given flash cards with bee hives and your job is to number each card from 1 through 15.
4. Once you have done that you can decorate your flash cards and bee hives before we begin the activity.
5. Scramble the flash cards.
6. You will then place them in the correct order from 1 through 15.
7. Once your flash cards are in the correct order take a glue stick and paste the flash cards on a piece of paper.
