The theme was "What's in your Hive?" We talked about how in a honey bee community, works together. Each bee has an important role to play in the hive. It's the same in the human world.
Students started out by listing things that were important to them. Lists often included family, friends, sports, hobbies, and favorite activities and foods. Next, they created mini drawings inside a hive template. Color was added with colored pencil and the hive form was built with construction paper in a variety of colors. Once each student's section was constructed, the hive was attached to the wall outside the art room.
This activity was adapted from this lesson plan.
