I love a good interactive book. Having hands on features always keeps my 7 year old's attention. As homeschoolers we take time to study topics deeply especially when it comes to science. This whole past year we've focused on animals and insects so Turn This Book Into A Beehive! was a perfect addition.
This book is very unique as there is a removable outer cover that you can turn into a beehive! We had a blast working on that and learning about the bees that would like this type of hive.
For this project you needed the book jacket, back template (in the back of the book), pages from the book (easily torn out), a pencil and tape.
First you build the outer housing of the hive
There are easy instructions.
Then you roll the paper into tubes.
You fill the hive with the tubes of paper then hang.
We hung ours outside on the fence since we don't have any trees on our property. It is fairly close to some plants so we will check it in about a week for evidence of any bees.
ABOUT THE BOOK
TURN THIS BOOK INTO A BEEHIVE (on-sale: April 3) introduces kids to the amazing mason bee, a non-aggressive, super-pollinator that does the work of over 100 honeybees. Twenty activities and hands-on experiments reveal even more about bees—use a balloon and static electricity to understand how pollen “leaps” from a flower, make a bee buzzer to demonstrate how bees’ wings make their buzzing noises, use the perforated pages and cover to turn parts of the book into a literal beehive for mason bees, learn how bees communicate with one another through “dance,” and more. It’s the real buzz on bees, delivered in the most ingenious and interactive way
