It's always amazing to see the wonders of God's creation at work. This sent us to our computers to read up about bees and beehives and how they are made. We learned about the difference between beehives (made of wax that bees produce) and wasp/hornet hives (made of papery material from wood pulp) as well as how colonies are created and maintained. We learned a bit about the work of the bees and their lifespan. It was all quite interesting and it's always a nice science lesson to learn things because you are confronted with a question or situation that you would like some answers too.
