In this activity, children are given the opportunity to explore Australian native bees. They will begin by looking at pictures of native bees and finding out why native bees are important. They will then go outside to observe bees and other pollinators in the garden or park. Finally, children can create artworks about bees to share with an audience. This activity also includes information about improving native bee habitats in your own garden.

Learning@Home resources are designed for parents and teachers to use with children in the home environment. They can be used as stand-alone activities or built into existing curriculum-aligned learning programs. Our Learning@Home series includes two types of resources. The first are fun and challenging real-world activities for all ages, the second are self-directed lessons for upper primary and secondary students. These lessons support independent learning in remote or school settings.
