Love food? Love bees! encourages all Australians to “bee” friendly. Small and vital, bees work together for the good of the ecosystem. In their role as pollinators, bees contribute to at least one in every three mouthfuls of food produced!
This unit supports students to inquire into the role of bees in the ecosystem and how they can flourish in their role as pollinators. Students develop an understanding of bees, their role as pollinators, the threats they face and the steps they can take to be bee-friendly. By practising critical and creative thinking, students will be equipped to consider the impact of bees based on social, environmental and economic criteria and will be encouraged to take action around this important issue.
