Hannah’s Big Idea: Hannah created a problem-based learning experience focused on honey bees. The project explored the roles of bees in our ecosystem, understood why there is a decline in the honey bee population, and provided examples of what students can do in their community to combat the honey bee decline.
Outside the classroom, students built and maintained beehives to test how pollination affects the growth of fruits and vegetables and the taste of the bees’ honey.
Eventually, Hannah’s students packaged and sold the honey.
Interesting Facts: Hannah started a beekeeping club at her school to provide students the opportunity to become certified beekeepers.
