Honey of a Lesson


     Honey Hills Farm beekeeper, Jeff Bragg, was the guest speaker in fourth grade this week. He shared information about the decline of the bee population. Mr. Bragg brought samples of honey from his beehives which the adults sampled. Mr. Bragg brought his beekeepers suit and an empty bee box. This was a great opportunity for the fourth graders to engage in collaborative conversations and hands on experiences with life science. This was also an opportunity to allow the students to explore this as a career option in their future. The fourth grade classes were invited by Mr. Bragg to visit Honey Hills Farm in Braxton County to experience his over 300 beehives firsthand. Mrs. Dick invited Mr. Bragg to return to Wilsonburg on our school career day to share his knowledge with students in different grade levels.
