Be the Bee

Honeybee Queen is the mother to an entire hive. Worker bees are sent out to collect nectar, a bee’s food source, and bring it back to the hive. They communicate where the best flowers are through dance. In this activity, you will have a chance to communicate where a flower is using a dance.
