The 20th of May is World Bee Day. It is to draw attention to the essential role bees and other pollinators play in keeping people and the planet healthy. The following provides free Printables that will enable you to celebrate World Bee Day at your service that can be implemented into the curriculum for children.
About World Bee Day
World Bee Day shines a light on the habitat of pollinators to improve the conditions for their survival so that bees and other pollinators may thrive.
The date was chosen as it was the day Anton Janša, a pioneer of modern apiculture, was born. Janša came from a family of beekeepers in Slovenia, where beekeeping is an important agricultural activity with a long-standing tradition.
Bee Counting Cards - Bee Counting Cards encourage children to recognise the number on the counting mat and to match the correct number of bees. This is a great way for children to learn number recognition and one-to-one correspondence.
Bee Tracing Lines - Bee Tracing Lines enables children to trace over the lines in order to improve their hand/eye coordination and their pre-writing skills.
Bees Fact Posters - Bees Fact Posters have interesting facts about bees. These are great to use during group discussions on bees and to share with children.
