This bundle of the parts of a bee and the life cycle of a bee is a wonderful set of zoology puzzles for any homeschool, Montessori classroom or science-focused bee lesson at home. The mats are laser engraved and the one for the parts of a bee can be used as a base for the puzzle or to make a honeycomb puzzle.
The pieces have been laser cut, engraved and hand-assembled for precise details and accurate representation. The parts of the bee can be assembled with the help of a control chart as well as the life cycle activity.
Learning the parts of this critter is fun and made more challenging by using Montessori 3-part cards, a method which is highly effective for increasing zoology vocabulary.
If you'd like to teach your kids about this amazing and vital member of the ecosystem, these games will get your kids curious and wanting to learn more!
