Skwirk, an e-learning website from Australia, has produced a charming animated video that introduces school kids to the life cycle of the honey bee.
However, as a cartoon introduction to a complex subject, designed for very young children (and a very short video — just over 1 minute long), it’s cute and engaging.
Animation like this could be a good way to answer some of the many questions that kids have for beekeepers, and create interest in beekeeping at an early age. I wonder if a beekeeping association could launch a project to create something similar … but a cartoon that more accurately represents the honeybees of the real world?
What other honeybee-related educational materials for younger students have you come across on the Internet?

As spring is fast approaching, community events are popping up all over the place! An upcoming event the CBA plans to attend is the ‘4th Annual Harvey Outdoor Adventure Show’. So mark April 24th in your calendars and program Hanselpacker Street into your GPS (same street as the Lougheed Pub)! The event is geared towards outdoor enthusiasts and hobbyist alike. Booths offer items for purchase from farm equipment to archery and include a great variety of groups offering information about activities- (fishing& hunting), programs (Women in Wilderness), raffle tickets and door prizes. Admission is $5 and a canteen is open all day, not to mention we’ll be selling honey and have live bees on display! It is a great community event full of warm smiles and friendly faces – hope to see you all there.
