Event description

Description

The Bee Girl organization is happy to announce our partnership with The Farm at SOU to bring bee education to students in Southern Oregon. May 14th - 18th 2018 we will host a week where Southern Oregon schools can visit us at The Farm, and engage in an educational experience designed especially for third graders.

Students will watch bees dance, listen to them buzz, taste honey, smell flowers, roll beeswax candles, observe pollination, take flower seeds home to plant, and learn about the important connections between themselves, bees, and our food. The “Bee Week” program is also designed to address the Next Generation Science Standards in the area of third grade Ecosystems/Biodiversity.

We will provide you with curriculum in early spring of 2018, make a visit to your classroom to let your students know what to expect at the farm, and then we will follow-up after Bee Week is over to address any questions and thoughts.

We will have morning and afternoon sessions available in May, where students are invited to an interactive lesson on bees and honey, and then spend the remainder of the time engaging in educational stations.

The program is $150 and includes curriculum, pre-visit to your classroom, the half day session at Bee Week, and a personal follow up from Program Director, Sarah Red-Laird.

Please reserve your spot here, and we will send an invoice shortly.

For questions on scheduling, or for more information, please contact Program Coordinator Phylicia Chandler at phylicia@beegirl.org or 541-708-1127.
