This webquest is simple, well-designed and ready to go! Some of the activities include drawing pictures to represent the size of each type of honeybee, counting the sides of each cell of the hive, writing about the duties of the honeybees and more. All thinking skill levels are included from basic knowledge questions to evaluation activities.

In the Classroom

In lower grades, this activity would be great as a guided activity in the computer lab or on laptops in your classroom. If you only have a computer or two, you could do some of the activities as centers. The teacher could direct the students throughout some of the activities and allow them to complete the writing, math problems and drawing activities on their own. A detailed grading rubric is included.

Teachers can also take the activity a step further, and have students create podcasts explaining how and why honeybees are so important. Use a tool like PodOmatic (reviewed here), to help students along.
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.
