Summer school and beekeeping
To begin with, I had the opportunity to do activities with a class of third grade students this week. The topic that I covered was on pollination. For instance, we played pollinator games, went over the parts of a flower, planted seeds, dissected owl pellets, and identified outside plants. On a different note, beekeeping has recently become a popular practice in Wise County. With this being said, I am so happy that people want to raise bees. Over the past few years, bee decline has become a major issue worldwide and one way to help is to have your own hives. As an intern, I had the chance to put on a bee suit and actually check hives this week. Overall, this experience was amazing and in the future, I hope to have a couple hives of my own.
