Bees are dying all over the world. Their ecosystem is being affected by humans. Even though the UK says they are not convinced that chemicals are the reason for the bees dying, a lot of people are convinced that this is so.
Get into groups of 3-4. Consider these questions, and discuss them.
- What do bees have to do with ecosystems?
- What effect will honey bees becoming extinct have on the world?
- What role do honey bees play in the world’s ecosystems?
- Do you think chemicals are affecting honey bees?
- Why do you think big companies might not like people believing that chemicals are responsible for honey bees dying?
- Why do you think people want to believe chemicals are responsible for honey bees dying?
- What other reasons could there be for honey bees dying?
Once you have discussed these questions, make a new post in your blog.
- Give it the title ‘Honey bees’, and put in the U.o.I. category. Tag it as Bees; ecosystems.
- Copy the orange part of this post and paste it into your own post.
- Write your answers under each question in a different colour.
- Find a picture of a honey bee and add it to your post.
- Don’t forget to publish/update it!
