Honeycomb Game

Can you guess what bees store in their honeycomb? Look at the pictures and think about stages of the lifecycle and food storage as you guess what’s in each picture. After you guess flip the picture over and see if you were correct. After you guess all the pictures, break through the tissue paper cover of the ‘honeycomb’ and get your sweet reward, a honey candy!

Pollination Activity
