Honey Bee Life Cycle 3-Part Cards

There are many, many bee life cycle cards on the internet, but I never ran across one that used real pictures.  When I came across these amazing pictures on Commons Wikimedia, I knew I had to add a set of life cycle 3-part cards to my bee week printables.

These life cycle cards pair perfectly with the Safari Ltd Bee Set.  We have loved the set for a few years, but the figurines took on new meaning this year when we added these cards.

I also recommend adding a few bee life cycle books like this one or a food chain book like this one.  The Life and Times of the Honey Bee is a fun read, too.


Random Honey Bee Fact:
Bees gather nectar from flowers and bring it back to the hive.  There, other bees fan the nectar with their wings and dehydrate it.  Dehydrated nectar called honey, and is antibacterial and can be stored for years.
