Library Learning Patch - Children Discovering Nature
Week 9 - All About Bees
An exciting day--we had a beekeeper, Bobby Cornelius, speak to our group. The children learned many interesting facts about bees. Mr. Cornelius brought samples of his equipment and housing for the children to examine.

The children were fascinated! He even brought his bee hat--one of the group demonstrated for us.

|Delicious local honey!|
In the garden the children harvested more lettuce and radishes. They planted cucumbers. Of course they weeded and watered. They are getting to be expert weeders.

|Salad for dinner tonight!|
Drop by the library and see the progress. Little baby cabbages are forming, the peas are beginning to bloom, and the onions are almost ready for harvest!
Isn't this fun??
