Kindergarten Kids were "Busy as Bees" this week.   We turned our classroom in to a beehive as we learned about the life cycle and life of a bee.   

These were some of our jobs inside the hive:1. Guard: the hive and don't let bees in who do not have the correct scent or know the secret  flying pattern.2. Garbage Workers:  work constantly to keep the wax and debris out of the hive.3. Food Gathers:  Bring pollen back to the hive for the colony.4. Queen Bee:  lay the eggs and lead the colony.5. Queen's guards:  protect the queen as she lays the eggs and keep her cool by flapping their wings to circulate the air. 6.  Nursery Workers: feed, and tend to the new eggs as they are growing to adult bees.  What a fun day!

Kindergarten students had a visit from the Springville Art Museum today.  We learned about many different forms of art and got to see some beautiful prints.  We then got a chance to explore and create our own mini abstract pictures using different shapes to create different objects.
