Turn Your Kids Into Backyard Scientists with our new Teaching Materials

 

Our team at Rent Mason Bees has created an Education page to provide teachers and parents with educational videos, printable worksheets, and a 19 page workbook that can be downloaded and used to guide kids into becoming backyard scientists.


 

Mason Bee Workbook for Students – Reading, Math, Science


This workbook will teach students about the lifecycle of three different bees, how they help us grow our food, and how to track the progress of their mason bees throughout the spring. 

 

 

 

 


 

Mason Bee Observation Journal!


The journal asks students: What are you bees doing and what is growing in your yard?

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have downloadable PDFs for students to learn the difference between mason bees and honey bees as well as a video library for them to learn how to identify bees.
