Learning about the berries and the bees

As part of a learning segment on insects, their lifecycles, and their importance to the larger ecosystem, the class visited a Beekeeper with a berry farm in upstate New York.

The girls ready to go meet some bees.

Once in the country, of course they needed to ride on the ATV..

Safety First!

The children brought back loads of great fresh picked raspberries to add to their old-fashioned book learnin' about pollination and the life of the bee hive and it's Beekeeper.
