|The Amazing Bee|
He described in detail how the bees get the nectar and produce honey. The children were amazed to learn how many flowers a bee must visit in order to gather enough nectar to produce honey. He also gave them a good tip for what they should do if stung by a bee--don't pull out the stinger, scrape it off. He passed out activity books which featured bees.

After visiting the flower bag, each child went to someone else's flower and rubbed it, thereby spreading the pollen (Cheeto yellow). What fun they had.
