Take your gear: smoker, veil, gloves, and hive tool.  Also take at least 1 frame, 1 of foundation and 1 of drawn comb is better.  Taking a Nuc would be even better as you can demonstrate how you work a hive.  Set it one a desk in the center of the classroom and have everybody gather around.  If you can't make an hour out of that, you're slacking.

Bring chocolate and veggies. Ask the kids which one they like. They will all point to the chocolate . Then tell them bees halp make chocolate when they pollinate(big word there) they also help make the veggies.

Bring honey explain how bees make honey. Let them know honey is basically bee barf. At that age that is how you get their attention.

Bring an observation hive.

Bring in a piece of comb. Let them touch. They will probably destroy it but that can show them how fragile it can be.

If you can get a big stuffed bee you can point out bee parts to the kids including the stinger.

Let them know when a bee stings them it will eventually die because of it. tell them not to mess with bee hives.

Let them know about the three types of bees in a hive and how long each of them lives.

That is enough for now.

Sincerely,
Brendhan

If you don't have an OB hive or the school will not let you bring one in......Drones in a jar would be cool. The funniest thing I have ever seen is a kid about 6 or 7 came up to me once with a plastic container with cheese cloth sticking out from under the lid.......he said "I have bees.....do you want to see them?" I am like hell yeah and he slowly pulls the lid back so I could see in side and he has a bunch of B s (like in ABC) cut out of construction paper......very cute. Would be a great thing to send the class home with after a bee talk cheesy

Don't forget Josh - some schools allow a short field trip, they could come to your home and you could have the Ob. Hive outside (or in if it is impossible to move) and everyone could see it and real hives too. I've had classes from Lakehurst Elementary in my yard before, watching a full inspection, they really got into it. So, you might not even need the Ob. Hive if you can demonstrate with the outside colonies. Just a thought.

P.S. Get to work on that film, use your camera to follow BEE ACTIVITY in the Ob. Hive, then moderate what they are doing, it makes a bunch of sense when you see a waggle dance or foragers carrying back pollen. etc..
