Recommended Grades: 4-6
A great informational text about the honey bee, the planet’s greatest pollinator and one of nature’s most important creatures.
Mentor Text: Nonfiction Picture Book/Comparing Information: Read aloud Flight of the Honey Bee(a Maryland Black Eyed Susan nominee) and discuss the role of a honey bee on our planet. Instead of fearing bees, we should do what we can to save them as they are in danger of dying out. Pair the book with the article, “The Plight of the Honeybee” in National Geographic for students to compare information.
