You may have never even considered a bee except for the fact that they sting, but if bees especially the honey bees have very important jobs. If you happen to love/like honey you can appreciate bees for that. However, without bees and pollination we would not have 2/3 of the foods we eat today. So, if you are unaware of the theories of why bee colonies are dying take time to view the videos and think about what your life would be like if there were no more bees to pollinate flowers, fruit trees, etc.
What is happening to the honey bees?

Even in England there has been signs of colony collapse disorder.
Did you know that farmers depend on bees for pollination?

Mayans and Egyptians knew the importance of the honeybees.
Global Connection: Berlin, Germany-Mr. Meinhardt teaches grades 6-12. He happens to be a bee farmer and teaches bee farming to his students. He has traveled to Israel recently and Atlanta, GA last year meeting other bee farmers.
Beekeepers House - First Snow ...
Mr. Meinhardt




Today we had snow. Therefore I took this actual picture for our friends in the USA. 2008.11.21 - 08 - Now there begins a very hard time for our bees: cold weather, rain, snow ... 2008.11.21 - 10 - ... they can not fly out of their hive for the next months.
Mr. Meinhardt has just returned from Israel and he has learned that there is
definitely evidence of a bee colony collapse in Israel. Here is what he had to say:
Mr. Meinhardt:
To: Ms. Young Colony collapse in Israel. We do not have colony collapse in Germany. I did not expect this problem in Israel. Yesterday, I visited a beekeeper near Haifa - we met eight years ago the first time, at that time I started with beekeeping - and I asked him about colony collapse. They have this problem. He lost about 200 colonies (from about 1000) - but they all do not know the reason. We spoke about this problem a long time. All speculations! They are working on this, I am always thinking about colony collapse.
I will write you about some (my) speculations later.
All the best from Israel.
Well, I would just like send my personal thanks to Mr. Meinhardt for bringing us that special report. Now, back to our school work. Please stay tuned incase you hear anything about the honey bees.

Recently, I was contacted by a local bee farmer in my local area and we are making plans for him to bring an observation hive into the classroom for my students to have a true experience with seeing honey bees in a hive. Here is a photo taken by IT at my school while he was at a local festival. This is what I expect to have in my classroom this spring.
