Kids love to learn about insects, even the ones who are afraid of them! It is a very popular pre-k theme that tends to stick around longer than other themes. And bees are the most fascinating to study. There are so many learning videos, games, and activities that can be incorporated into the classroom. A simple, yet educational game, is this bee 1:1 game. Younger kids get practice with 1:1 correspondence by counting each dot and number of bees that match each roll. It's very easy to make and is good for center use, small groups, and one-on-one.
