Homeschooling & Special Needs, Inspired by the Montessori Way

Field Trip #1…Beekeeping July 3, 2011

The first field trip we went on this past week was to the Columbus Metropolitan Library to hear a lesson by the Ohio Beekeeper’s Association.  Our homeschool field trip co-op set it up, and it was a great time!

Clover, beeswax, and pollen set up to show the various aspects of a bee's life.

All of the children listened to a brief lecture on the different types of bees, and what it takes to set up a man-made hive

Jedi loved the beekeeper's shirt!

After the lesson, the kids wanted to have a picnic on the library's lawn

And taking a little walk...

....and goofing off.

All three really really loved the fountain.
