Get your free Sponsor-a-Hive Educator's Kit!

Our Sponsor-A-Hive program offers bees and equipment to schools, communities, and gardens across the U.S. and Canada. For the schools involved in the program, we provide an original companion educator’s guide, the 2016 Sponsor-A-Hive Educator's Kit, full of lesson plans and worksheets to teach students more about their bee home. It's designed to build reading and science skills, raise environmental awareness, and empower students to help the bees. You can see some images of the Educator's Kit below.

We're making this kit available to all educators for free so that they can educate youth about the importance of bees and what can be done to save them. This Educator's Kit is suitable for teachers as well as other educators such as nature center educators or scout troop leaders.

This kit could not have been made without the support of The Edible Schoolyard Project, which contributed two lesson plans. The Edible Schoolyard Project's mission is to build and share an edible education curriculum for pre-kindergarten through high school.

We welcome your feedback and would love to hear how your students connected to the guided  activities in the Kit. Feel free to send us your feedback and photos.  You can share these with us on Twitter or Facebook.
