Grades K-2 | Planet Bee Foundation presents Bee-Ometry - May 19, 2023 2:10pm Eastern Time
About this event:
How does nature use principles of geometry to reach higher levels of efficiency? Using the engineering mindset, and a variety of geometry-based math topics, students evaluate the hexagon shapes in beehive cells, the sizes of native and honey bees, and the evidence of angles in the life of a bee. Students will be introduced to geometry concepts, vocabulary and application while also learning fascinating information about honey bees and native bees. With the goal of creating Bee Advocates, students will engage in conversation using evidence to support their ideas, practice and challenge their geometric reasoning, and develop a deeper knowledge of how bees are critical to a healthy ecosystem.
Program duration is 30 to 40 minutes.
